Non-associative learning refers to "a relatively permanent change in the strength of response to a single stimulus due to repeated exposure to that stimulus".
Enculturation is the process by which people learn values and behaviors that are appropriate or necessary in their surrounding culture.
Multimedia learning is where a person uses both auditory and visual stimuli to learn information.
It is completely preposterous to claim the whole universe moved so you can justify your perfect memory.
Again the theme of the importance of objective truth returns. Here, Winston takes the position that memory and objective truth must win out over falsehood because the Party cannot destroy memory. O'Brien is set on proving Winston wrong in this case. O'Brien tells Winston that the Party is far superior to Nazi Germany or the Russian Communists because, unlike those other regimes whose enemies were eventually turned into martyrs, the Party refuses to let a stray thought get through. Controlling all thought is the Party's power, a power that will remain timeless.
Here Orwell takes totalitarianism a step further — into the mind. The equation that Winston writes in his diary, 2 + 2 = 4, comes back to haunt him; it is the one objective truth that Winston cannot give up. The equation is the sticking-point between Winston and O'Brien and ultimately becomes the proof of Winston's reintegration. If Winston can believe that 2 + 2 = 5, then the Party has gotten inside of him.
As an example, I'm well versed on continental positions. I own a globe; it sits on my desk, and that globe has changed.

And yet it was always Rod Serling, not Rod Sterling. And it was always the Berenstain Bears, not the Berenstein Bears. You can write a wall of text bringing up irrelevant issues about memory if you want to, but those primary facts, and examples like them, are still out there. You can claim you "clearly" remember it differently THEREFORE, since your memory is perfect, you must have switched timelines if you want, but most rational people would not come to that conclusion. It is completely preposterous to claim the whole universe moved so you can justify your perfect memory.
In MY timeline there has ALWAYS been a Rod Serling of Twilight Zone fame and the Berenstain Bears, named after their authors, Stan and Jan Berenstain, since the 1950's. If you claim differently, I must conclude that you have migrated to MY timeline, and since I never granted you permission to do so, you are trespassing.
