Mustafa Alam, a student of Futuristic Learning based in Karachi, Pakistan, has set a new Guinness World Record by memorizing an astonishing 342 randomized binary numbers in just one minute. This remarkable achievement, which surpasses the previous record of 270 set in 2015 by an Indian participant, underscores the institute’s commitment to excellence in memory training.
Under the mentorship of coach Sania Alam, Futuristic Learning has garnered a reputation for producing Guinness World Record holders. Mustafa’s achievement marks the sixth record set by the institute’s students. Other notable records include Emma Alam’s feat of memorizing 410 random words in 15 minutes and Syed Nabeel Hasan Rizvi’s record for the longest number sequence memorized in four seconds (30 digits).
Mustafa Alam’s accomplishment is not just a numerical triumph but a testament to mental speed and focus. Memorizing 342 binary numbers, comprised only of 0s and 1s, in one minute reflects an impressive rate of over five numbers per second.
Mustafa Alam’s journey into memory training began as a study aid with coach Sania Alam, evolving into a passion for showcasing the potential of memory development at any age. Mustafa emphasizes, “Memory is not a passive attribute; rather, it is an active skill that can be cultivated like any other skill.”
Coach Sania Alam, herself a recipient of prestigious awards such as the ‘Brain of the Year’ for 2023/2024 from the UK Brain Trust and the Youth Excellence Award from the Prime Minister of Pakistan, has continuously demonstrated exceptional skill and dedication to cognitive development. Her accolades also include a Lifetime Achievement Award from US President Joe Biden.
