This pic for the side story 7 percent solution: Its a cheeky acronym, I know, but it is effective. If you want to learn the science of deduction, I recommend you arr it. For some reason I really like drawing Greg smoking…. People always interpret this scene to mean that Hide bounced from interest to interest frequently, but you guys are missing the point. Hide takes an interest in ghouls — goes on to work for the CCG, aid in the unity of humans and aet and even play a significant part in founding an organisation responsible for promoting that unity internationally.

As aspiring deductionists, the Mind Palace, also known as the Memory Palace or Brain Attic, becomes exceedingly important. It has the potential to be useful to anyone in any walk of life, but as people training ourselves in the art of deduction, having a wealth of reference information to draw back on becomes paramount.

I highly recommend this technique for anyone studying deduction. Many refer to it as a Memory Palace, as I stated earlier.

The truth is, this technique can be manipulated to become much more useful. He gets shot, having only seconds of consciousness left. So, doing what he could to save his own life, he fell back upon his Mind Palace. He figures out what he needs to do to save dsduction own life, one of them being the prevention of shock.


He falls back on a childhood memory of his pet dog named Redbeard, effectively calming him. This can be accomplished by having a specific room or section in your Palace dedicated to emotionally calming objects and locations to you. Mentally hang pictures on your wall, add a fireplace, calming music and aromas to this room.

This is immensely underrated, and could one day be incredibly important, whether you are in a life-threatening situation or are just incredibly stressed. Never underrate the necessity for a relaxation period. All of these will progressively get more vivid and realistic as you progress.

This one seems sort of obvious. Most use it to visualize objects, paintings, memories, etc.

However, you can go much, much further. Through a combination of his knowledge of the case and his own imagination, he is able to construct an entire world inside his own mind. Besides worlds, you can also remember people.

When you look at a complete mental universe, remembering and visualizing people may seem fairly obvious, but hear me out.

You can remember your friends, family, inspirational characters, etc. You know how when you know a person, you can predict what they would say to certain things? You memorize their personality, the different quirks of their person, and their little habits.

Using that, you can create a mental version of them in your head, and, with practice, have full conversations with them. This takes a large amount of practice and is fairly difficult to pull off. This can also serve as a calming technique as well or incredibly stressful and terrifying, depending who you visualize This is seen in Sherlock as well, not only in the Christmas special but we also see him have a conversation with Moriarty, a mental version that he had locked up, chained, and put into a padded room.


Originally posted pf aineown. This visualization deruction can serve many purposes, as clearly shown. However, while in school, I used this to memorize events in history. In order to memorize battles, I would actually put myself there in the heat of the battle, a calm and careful ghost walking amongst the chaos. I would visualize as gruesome as it is the blood flying. The explosions, the expressions of the soldiers, overhead view, all of it in slow motion.

With waves of my hand, I pause the scene. I can zoom in on particular details, for example, the marks of rank on a general. It is important to realize that this is your head and therefore, you are God.

You control time, location, and your view of the situation. You can imagine how it could be potentially disturbing to the mind to be able to picture in vivid detail, the more practice you get a murder take place.

Some may be more difficult than others based on your own natural abilities, but do not get discouraged. Raai these techniques and develop your own uses for your Mind Palace. Remember, your Palace is limited only by your own imagination.

Be creative with what you do with it. There are some very good programs and videos on how to become more observant, find them and utilize them. Practice mindfulness and concentration techniques post on that in progressthis will give you the ability to focus in your Palace for longer periods of time.

I believe that all my Tumblr friends mostly Johnlockers are a group of passionate, kind, intelligent fans who have been moved deeply by the love between John Watson and Sherlock Holmes and consequently feel strongly about this show. I realize that a lot of you were disappointed with S4—especially TFP.


Likewise, I tzz that some of you liked S4, were satisfied with how the show ended, and believe it must be taken at face value. I find myself in neither group and would like to present a theory that hopefully convinces my friends that the S4 is actually a clever, beautiful, unfinished, multi-layered puzzle.

Sherlock Holmes is known for his keen sense of observation and for his amazing deductive skills. In every ACD canon story, after a new case has been presented, or when the clues get all tangled, Holmes does nothing more than recline in his chair, put his hands together, and disappear in a trance-like state using a specific meditative technique he learned in Tibet.

My basic premise is that Sherlock has been in a deep Tibetan Trance since to end of HLV in dedhction to solve the apparent return of Moriarty.

A trance is a deliberate act of self-hypnosis It is different than using a mind palace or being in a coma. Anyway, for me, taking S4 at face value is acknowledging that what we are seeing ra the art of deduction at veduction very best. Heck, knowing Sherlock deductlon in a trance is like obtaining the key to a cipher.

All you need is your copy of ACD canon and a few of the other Sherlock Holmes adaptation and you can basically figure out everything. You can also find the answer other loose threads on the show.


And last but not least, Trance theory shows how we were right all along; this is a Gaz story of epic proportion. Okay, before I get to the fun part of explaining all these things, I first need to provide rrai evidence that Sherlock is in a trance. Crime solving had become his replacement drug, his escape from reality, and it was just as addictive to him as any other drug out there.

When they had gotten married, they stayed at B. She knew he loved her as much as she loved him, but she understood he still needed his fix, and his fix was in London. He never said dedkction, but Molly felt it. So, they moved to the country. She was worried about Sherlock and how he would take being away from London.

She was fine away from the city and could easily drive to work or find work elsewhere, but she felt Sherlock might need London to survive. They bought a cottage on a hill in a little village. It had bits of stained glass in the windows and a little chimney poking up from the roof.

There deductiion a giant yard full of wildflowers and a little gravel path lined by yellow daisies, lavender, dedduction primrose. Molly nearly cried when they had first pulled up to it. Seeing this, Sherlock bought it. Sherlock still solved crimes, and in doing so got his fix, or at least Molly thought that was the case.

One day, however, Molly finally asked Sherlock if he missed London. Looking tai from his microscope, he stared at her, and said. Crime solving was not his escape. His escape was the little cottage on the hill with the stained glass in the windows and the little ceduction poking up from the roof. His escape was tending bees with his daughter, whom he called his little bumblebee due to her love of picking flowers.

His escape was spontaneously dancing in the living room with his wife as his son arf them to stop, cowering behind his hands. His escape was teaching his exceedingly bright children the art of deduction and watching them pick it up with ease. All of this, Molly realized as she sat on the steps outside their cottage, was what truly made Sherlock Holmes happy.

So I will list logical fallacies that most people fall into all the time. If you, the reader notice that you may be a victim of any of these fallacies try to change your way of thinking.

A way to avoid: The probability of something does never grantee you wrt it is correct. She majored in philosophy. As a student, she was deeply concerned with issues of discrimination and social justice, and also participated in anti-nuclear demonstrations.

Which is more probable? Linda is a bank teller. Linda is a bank teller and is active in the deductjon movement. But the probability of the two occurring together is less or equal to the probability of them occurring alone. So the probability of her being both are lower than the lowest. Try to think critically.
