Welcome to Pryor's 1,2,3 Introduction to
The above three Images are Fabulous Images
Mnemosyne, call her Mneme, reveals an association of
Seek into your past, into yourself, into your mind.
Do you make the same associations of mind as Mneme?
One thing Pryor likes to do is
The fabulous associations become:
Is this not as easy as 1,2,3!
Can you forget these associations from the past?
Pryor's Inspiration was
12 21 13 31 23 32
For example for number 12,
The 'added' images taken 'together' may become:
Not a very useful "image."
Seeking a useful image,
This transformation to a single No.12 Image
Leading Digit = Added Qualities of No.1
Base Digit = Base Qualities of No.2
The added or leading qualities are both
Now consider and know and feel and see
Surely No.13 feels long and rigid and pointed,
Like its leading No.1 Pointed Hook qualities?
No.23 is more complicated, but upon reflection does not
the active element of the Snake prevail and lead to the
snakelike No.2 defining image essence?
Now take another intuitive leap of mind, and
Consider transforming the No.23 Talking Tree Snake
Into a three-digit Number-Image for No.123.
Choose Pryor's way and the Digit Priority becomes:
Leading Digit = Added Qualities of No.1
Base Image = Base Qualities of No.23
"How may The Talking Tree Snake base image No.23
be transformed to have No.1 Pointed Hook qualities?"
Before reading further, seek first within your mind!
Seeking within yourself have you glimpsed:
Any rigid snakes?
Any long and hook-like and rigid snakes?
Any snakes turning long and rigid?
Perhaps a coiled snake drops out of a tree,
And as it falls it straightens out to be long.
Perhaps a hook-like, wooden staff drops out of a hand,
And as it falls it twists and bends,
And as it hisses it strikes the floor as a snake!
Seeking within your past,
Have you glimpsed such transformations?
Within the Judeo-Christian past of Pryor,
Pryor has glimpsed Moses casting down his staff
That turns into a mighty snake!
Pryor knowing the power of Moses' Staff
Knows the Staff and its Snakes are divine,
And one divine snake must surely be
The Talking Tree Snake of No.23.
And that cast down surely was:
Moses' Divine Staff of No.123
DO YOU AGREE ?
In your mind's eye,
May the coiling Talking Tree Snake
Uncoil and become long and rigid for Moses?
Become a long and Divine Staff of his favorite shape?
IF IT MAY
Pryor would be your Guide.
Now you know 3 out of 10 of
Mneme's One-Digit, Fabulous Number-Images.
Now you know 3 out of 100 of
Pryor's Two-Digit, Combination Number-Images.
One utility of Pryor's System is that
the 100 two-digit images group naturally
into only 10 families, each as defined by its leading
digit position number-image. Thus denary recall
proceeds as much by the tens as by the hundreds!
If the path beckons, Pryor would be your Guide.
J. PRYOR POINTS OUT
For an easy to read explanation of right and left brain functions, and hence of the visual-conceptual dimension of mind inherent in Pryor's Development System, read the expanded version of a classic book, The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Dr. Betty Edwards, 1989 Revision in paperback or hardcover. This book is based upon the latest in brain research and offers fascinating insights into developing your potentials of mind in artistic imagination, visualization of images, and nonverbal problem solving.

Pryor's above online 1,2,3 Introduction presents numbers 1, 2, and 3 of Pryor's ten fabulous number-images. Pryor's online Home page shows two more of these ten basic images, without specifically noting their numbers. For an online Web page of study skills employing such number-image associations in mnemonics, try Improving Your Memory Skills. This page notes research over the last ten years pointing to the effectiveness of mnemonics in learning. Several mnemonic tools are presented, including a Number-Image System but to add Pryor's powerful dimension of mind, find your number-images using Pryor's Development System!
