Memory Analysis Ritual (Part 1)

The common way to do memory analysis is through a powerful agency. Then certain sequences of actions become a common ritual practice. Here is my definition of ritual in this context based on Victor Turner’s cited in Religion: The Basics:

Formal actions that rely on beliefs in perceived powers.

Typical example from Windows crash dump analysis includes WinDbg as an agency and typing !analyze -v command.
