From Frances Yates’ The Art of Memory:

What are these ‘Seals’? As a preliminary to attempting to answer that question I invite the reader to come with me for a page or two to Florence where we will practice the art of memory together (244).

Local memory is like eating and drinking.  If we ate all our food at once we should have indigestion, so we divide it into separate meals.  So we should do with local memory (245).
