In this section we detail several worthwhile, yet extremely difficult, mental challenges.
These are not necessary study undertakings, but rather ones that would enrich the individual significantly. And, at the same time, sharpen the USM tool at his/her disposal.
The Shakespeare Challenge involves memorising the entire works of William Shakespeare.
If Shakespeare does not thrill you, consider applying the challenge to other literary giants: William Blake, Voltaire, Goethe, Cervantes, etc.
THE SHAKESPEARE CHALLENGE
THE BIBLE CHALLENGE
The Bible Challenge involves memorising the entire Bible.
You can apply this challenge to the religious text most appropriate for you: Old Testament, New Testament, Quran, Zohar, Pali Canon, Vedas, Adi Granth, and the Four Books.
THE ACUPUNCTURE CHALLENGE
The Acupuncture Challenge involves memorising the entire map of acupuncture points—covering both name and location.
The Dictionary Challenge involves memorising the entire dictionary.In terms of enriching oneself, to this endeavour there is no equal.
(Be not alarmed, this is not an impossible task—it has been achieved by other otherwise-ordinary individuals.)
THE DICTIONARY CHALLENGE
THE HOMER CHALLENGE
The Homer Challenge involves memorising the Iliad and then the Odyssey.
(It is said that Alexander the great, pupil of Aristotle, knew much of these by heart, and may have slept with a copy of the Iliad under his pillow.)
