    And I mean everything–every gemara, rishon, acharon–down to chelkas yoav and toras refael, etc.–?

    they keep on reviewing their learning over & over again non-stop. there is never enough times for then to stop & it stays in them.

    REVIEWING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO LEARNING TORAH

    Jakob, reviewing helps you learn better, but it doesn’t help cover more material.

    Do people still listen to books on tape during their sleep?

    Or, was that trend a 90’s thing, where people fell asleep to educational audiobooks, expecting to br listening and absorbing the material while sleeping?

    Either way, sleep plays a huge role in processing information.

    LB, one of the recent gedolim hardly slept at all. Can someone refresh my memory as to who it was?

    Boruch Hashem We have tzaddikim in every generation, these tzaddikim live a life of torah & know the entire shas & poskim backwards & forwards. Why is it that they are able to remember everything-from Shas to poskim & Shulcan aruch etc…- but we are not? If i ask 1000 people, everyone will give the same answer, of course Harav Chaim Kanievsky makes a siyum hashas every erev pesach & this Tzaddik learns Shulchan aruch 4 times a year etc… YES that is true BUT that is only the truth from this world (the olam Hasheker) what the truth from the olam Haemes? Whats Hashems Chashban? Hashem created each person with a brain & a memory, he also created something called forgetfulness, the only problem is if there was no such a thing as forgetfulness then everyone would say i learnt the entire Mishna Brura from beginning to end, so theres no need for me to review the Halachos of Pesach before Yom Tov. (or any other halachic situation) But when it comes to Tzaddikim-who learn day & night even though they remember it from last time-they don’t learn it once Be’eyun (seriously) & the next 50 times be’kiyus (lightly). Every time they learn it, its with the same Ahavas Hatorah as the first time they learned it (if they’re not reviewing it then they’re learning it in a whole new way) so there’s no need for forgetfulness & why shouldn’t Hashem give them Hatzlacha to remember everything? (do you think Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky SHLITA or any other Rosh Yeshiva or Mashgiach learn any less because they know the entire shas & shulchan aruch from beginning to end by heart?) Going from Torah to Ahavas Hatorah is not going from level 1 to 2, it’s actually going from level 1 to level 40, there are so many steps &  levels between these 2 classes until a person can reach this high level of a Gadol Hador, where this is their Simchas Ha’chaim (happiness in life). While one persons Simchas Ha’chaim is a million dollars, anothers is a vacation or a fancy car etc… Torah is what gives these Tzaddikim a Simchas Ha’chaim.  Now YOU can also become a gadol Hador & grow in Torah-with the proper work & effort-its never too late (even Rabbi Akiva started at 40 & look what a tzaddik he became)

    How do u know that these people know (everything). Did u test them or did they tell u that they know everything?

    One thing that tzaddikim in every generation have in common is their excellent grammar when writing long texts. They value their readers’ time and don’t force them to waste it on trying to decipher illegible, unintelligible writing.

    Tzaddikim have ruach hakodesh. Including when writing their seforim hakedoshim.

    It happens when you’re a teenager. Then when hit your 220s, you see how much smarter your parents became in a few short years.

    Joseph, what percentage of seforim hakedoshim is wired?
    BoysWork, sadly, people nowadays rarely live into their 220s.

    RY, none unless you’re considering the strings in the bindings to be wired.

    Joseph. Which tzadikim who wrote seforim in the past 150 years had ruach hakodesh. ?

    That refers to understanding. Remembering is something else
    (possibly siyatta d’shmaya – I don’t remember).

    The Chofetz Chaim had ruach hakodesh, to take one recent example.

    I’m sure this is referring to me. However, I must humbly say, there are at least three (make that four, make that five…) things I don’t know.

    LF – when I saw that you commented on this thread, I was wondering if that was what you wrote.
