Question
Simple is easy.

Give an imagery on how this works.
Answer
Imagine a labyrinth. When making a repetition of a piece of material, your brain is running through a labyrinth. While running through the labyrinth, the brain leaves a track on the walls. If it can run in only one unique way, the path is continuous and easy to follow. If there are many combinations, each run may leave a different trace that will interfere with other traces making it difficult to find the exit.

Question
2 rules to follow in minimum information principle.
Answer
1. Simple is easy.

2. Split a complex item into sub-items. (i.e. To memorize an answer with many details, give each detail a question.)

Example:
Ill-formulated knowledge - Complex and wordy

Q: What are the characteristics of the Dead Sea?
A: Salt lake located on the border between Israel and Jordan. Its shoreline is the lowest point on the Earth's surface, averaging 396 m below sea level. It is 74 km long. It is seven times as salty (30% by volume) as the ocean. Its density keeps swimmers afloat. Only simple organisms can live in its saline waters

Well-formulated knowledge - Simple and specific

Q: Where is the Dead Sea located?
A: on the border between Israel and Jordan

Q: What is the lowest point on the Earth's surface?
A: The Dead Sea shoreline

Q: What is the average level on which the Dead Sea is located?
A: 400 meters (below sea level)

Q: How long is the Dead Sea?
A: 70 km

Q: How much saltier is the Dead Sea as compared with the oceans?
A: 7 times

Q: What is the volume content of salt in the Dead Sea?
A: 30%

Q: Why can the Dead Sea keep swimmers afloat?
A: due to high salt content

Q: Why is the Dead Sea called Dead?
A: because only simple organisms can live in it

Q: Why only simple organisms can live in the Dead Sea?
A: because of high salt content

Four principles for a proper Mind Map

1. [...]
2. Use only one word on each branch.
3. Central image should be unique and reflect the theme; using generic shapes with titles do not engage the brain.
4. Main branches of Mind Map should be thicker to reflect their importance.
5. Avoid locking thoughts in a box; this limits radiant flow of thought.
Answer
Avoid straight lines.
