From the New Science to Science
With the printing and then the computing civilization phases, the Art of Memory has progressed from an antique, (Simonidian, Athenian) age up to Psychoanalysis. Its maturation by the Renaissance is significant.
A complex transformation of the ancient magic is stated by G.Bruno who formulated the foundation of the contemporary semiotics:
" Images do not receive their names from the explanations of the things they signify, but rather from the condition of those things (Significand) that do the signifying " - would write Bruno, as to be represented in the Plural Analysis management of nature (Ecology)
So Bruno could also write that the Order of the Cosmos (Significand) is in the likeness of the natural of which it is the shadow (re: "image"above), as it is the image of the divine, of which it is the vestige.
We see the image of the divine as the burried nature, reflected in a lake - the vestige of an ancestor, the mirage of memories, that PLural ANalysis collects from the group which abandons its past.
A third episode acheived the cycle of the human topics:
'Those things that do the signifying" (as Bruno said) built a Cave-like in Nature :
This Cave, then, closes itself - as with a mirror - if it has produced
a cybernetical system.
The complete Cycle of

In the 20th Century a full set of formula

note - for technicians :
The above explicitation of the Art of Memory into PLural ANalysis is illustrated - beside the theory arguments - with two by two adornments of the books of major theoricians of this Art after the Renaissance - Vico (left) and Kirchner (right) during and after the Renaissance:
