The Reminder Theorem

back then.. wen i was in form 4.. i dnt remember which day.. i just remember it was break time. my n my friends wen in the class… ti p fer devoir addmaths (pa ti fer homework, lol). And a discussion raised… about a theorem that i had put forward! The Reminder Theorem! (not remainder).. well well… if an apple goes up and comes back down(which has nothing extra ordinary from my nani’s pont of view) is given big big names like Newtons Law of Gravitation…, y cant i do smething similar to a similar similarity!

Lets come back to the Break time in f4 white class. It was a dicussion between me n shehezaad(dude, if ur reading! i havent forgoton u! :P).

S4ndeep phrased : let me tell u about the Reminder Theorem… basically.. it states that.. the harder you try to forget something… the more you’l remember it! 😀

Testing the validty of the Law :

Test 1

1 . What is 35 + 35 ??

2. Got the answer??

3. If i ask u to forget the answer!? Can u? Come’on! i give u 1 million cents if u can forget it! Come on!! forget it! lol..

4. Test sucessfull.

Test 2

1. read : 7,9,12,13,14,15,42

2. read in 3 more times. just memorize it..

3. lol.. 4get it them now.. can u?? dnt cheat urself.. u clearly remember the numbers! right?

4. now do this calculation in mind.. ((4 X 5) / 2) +1

5 Got the  answer?? great! now… do you remember the series of numbers in step 1??? hahaha…. how the hell did you forget it??? sme seconds ago u were’nt able to!

6. here comes the theorem! believe it now?

the harder you try to forget something… the more you’l remember it!


Lets explain it the mechanical way!

When i say! Apple!! Automatically, your brain comes up with a picture of a red apple or an iphone/mac mayB..

what just happend???? Apple was the INPUT. your brain PROCESSED it, SEARCHED for that word in the INDEX of your memory. and the immediate OUTPUT was a picture of what ur brain defines as “apple” or a previous experience that u had, involving “apple”.

INPUT –> PROCESSING ( searching the memory, comparing, deciding) –> OUTPUT

Is this familiar to you???? but how does this explains the Reminder Theorem!? Have you figured it out!?

Whats my definition of Remembering?? Its the process whereby a request is sent to ur brain with a certain “keyword” to search for. That REMEMBERING!!! remeber that! 😛

When i said 35 + 35. Tehchincally, you stored 70 in your “short-term memory”. I asked you to forget it! then what happend inside that einsteinien brain of yours!? you told ur brain to forget?? how do u do that?? obviouly u dnt knw hw.. coz u never really did it before.

you sent a message to ur brain.. 4get 70.

brain asked.. what to forget?

answer : 70

brain : 70?? i just made a calculation previously, that involved 35+ 35.

brain : what to forget??

answer: 70

Thats it!!!!!  brain : what to forget??,

Its the process whereby a request is sent to ur brain with a certain “keyword” to search for. That REMEMBERING!!!

Your brain is actually rembering 70 each time u are asking it to forget it!!
