Abbreviation-Stacking

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What is abbreviation-stacking?”

“It’s the practice of using the same abbreviation for multiple concepts.

For instance one abbreviation I use is MM.

MM
Memento Mori
Moving Meditation
Macro-Meditation
Micro-Meditation
Micro-Moments

“What are the benefits?”

“An abbreviation-stack is an access-point for retrieving multiple things from memory.

In being unexplicit, it forces you to engage in active recall. In other words, it has a built-in challenge, which aids memory consolidation.

Another benefit is that you can resignify already existing abbreviations, turning them into reminders.

For instance the logo LG reminds me of Loving Gratitude [<link; medium read].”
