Read Faster and Understand What You Read

Slogging through dense passages of text can be time-consuming, mentally exhausting, and hard on your eyes. If you want to read faster while maintaining reading comprehension, check out these seven tips.

1. Preview the Text

Viewing a film’s trailer before watching the movie gives you context and lets you know what to expect. Likewise, previewing a text before reading it prepares you to quickly gain an understanding of what you’re about to read. To preview a text, scan it from the beginning to the end, paying special attention to headings, subheadings, anything in bold or large font, and bullet points. To get a big picture understanding, skim the introductory and concluding paragraphs. Try to identify transition sentences, examine any images or graphs, and figure out how the author structured the text.

2. Plan Your Reading

Strategically approaching a text will make a big difference in how efficiently you can digest the material. First, think about your goals. What do you want to learn by reading the material? Jot down some questions you want to be able to answer by the end. Then, determine the author’s goal in writing the material, based on your preview.. If your goal is more limited in scope than the author’s, plan to only find and read the pertinent sections.
Similarly, vary your plan of attack based on the type of material you’re about to read. If you’re going to read a dense legal or scientific text, you should probably plan to read certain passages more slowly and carefully than you’d read a novel or magazine.

3. Minimize Distractions and Interruptions

Reading quickly with good comprehension requires focus and concentration. Minimize external noise, distractions, and interruptions, and be mindful when your thoughts wander as you read. If you notice that you’re fantasizing about your next meal rather than focusing on the text, gently bring your mind back to the material. Many readers read a few sentences passively, without focus, then spend time going back and re-reading to make sure they understand them. This habit, called regression, will significantly slow you down and make it harder to get a big picture view of the text. If you carefully and attentively approach a text, you'll quickly realize if you’re not understanding a section, saving you time in the long run.

4. Don’t Read Every Word

To increase your reading speed, pay attention to your eyes. Most people can scan in 1.5 inch chunks, which, depending on the font size and type of text, usually comprise three to five words each. Rather than reading each word individually, move your eyes in a scanning motion, jumping from a chunk (of three to five words) to the next chunk of words. Take advantage of your peripheral vision to speed up around the beginning and end of each line, focusing on blocks of words rather than the first and last words. 

Pointing your finger or a pen at each chunk of words will help you learn to move your eyes quickly over the text. And it will encourage you not to subvocalize as you read. Subvocalization, or silently pronouncing each word in your head as you read, will slow you down and distract you from the author’s main point.

5. Don’t Read Every Section

It’s an old-fashioned myth that students must read every section of a textbook or article. Unless you’re reading something extremely important, skip the sections that aren’t relevant to your purpose. Reading selectively will make it possible for you to digest the main points of many texts, rather than only having time to fully read a couple.

6. Write a Summary

Your job shouldn’t end when you read the last word on the page. After you finish reading, write a few sentences to summarize what you read, and answer any questions you had before you started reading. Did you learn what you were hoping to learn? By spending a few minutes after reading to think, synthesize the information, and write what you learned, you’ll solidify the material in your mind and have better recall later. If you’re a more visual or verbal learner, draw a mind map summary or tell someone what you learned.

7. Practice Timed Runs

Approaching a text strategically, reading actively, and summarizing effectively takes practice. If you want to improve your reading speed, use a timer to test how many words (or pages) per minute you can read. As you’re able to read faster and faster, check in with yourself to make sure you’re happy with your level of comprehension.

Senses


Every cell in the human organism (some trillions of them) does act as some kind of information- dealing receptor.
The physical five senses, which can more accurately be redefined as receptors of information confined exclusively to the limits of the receptors.

In 1962, in France, a short paper by V. Mironovitch was published in revue metapsychique.
The paper reported on a number of discoveries and was entitled “The cells of the organism that act as receptors and emitters of electromagnetic waves,” and reported on a number of discoveries.

Among these was the discovery that cells have activities that are akin to semi-conductors that “capture” electromagnetic waves and transform their energies into “a nervous flux” that then affects the physiological state of the organism.

The cells not only received but also emitted and transmitted electromagnetic “signals” or impulses.
Mironovitch (and other French researchers) held that via its cellular “information” receptors “our organism is very intimately linked into all areas of ambient activity,” including meteorological effects of the terrestrial atmosphere (such as pressure, temperature, humidity, and electrical charges), but also is directly exposed to and connected with cosmic radiations. 

Based on this, and other discoveries, Mironovitch then suggested that the transmission of thought should indeed be possible because of, and via, biophysical receptors and emitters.
Recent scientific research has discovered that there are many more than five senses, and these discoveries have radically changed our understanding of what the senses are and how they work.

INTUITION

INTUITION is “the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without rational thought or reference.” 

The ENCYCLOPEDIA OF OCCULTISM AND PARAPSYCHOLOGY indicates that INTUITION is “that sense of faculty in the human mind by which man knows (or may know) facts of which he would otherwise not be cognizant — acts which might not be apparent to him through process of reason or so-called scientific proof.”

“The power or faculty” is basically composed of interactions of multiple kinds of sensing systems which conventional power authorities of course assert do not and cannot exist.

Intuition, and its associated sensing systems, cannot be based only on the five physical senses. 

For example, the sensing of love, hate, and sexual availability are not functions of the five physical senses, and neither is the sensing of stealth activity, secrecy, duplicity, truth, falsehood, and even the sensing of power.

Most people realize that they possess sensing systems that have been dumbed down within the contexts of conventional cultural, scientific, and philosophical terms, but they seldom realize why or how. 

 However, if the prospective of multiple sensing systems is readmitted into consideration, all individual humans can be thought of as composites of self-propulsion walking, talking, thinking, and sensing systems.

Ingo Swann on History of Civilization on Earth



“Information about other Earth epochs has reached me, sporadically and in fragments of accounts. One woman, a stranger to me, mailed me a huge book that accounted for an entire civilization far more advanced than ours today. 

This was neither Mu nor Atlantis but like Lemuria and Atlantis, technologies were far more advanced than ours are today. In all of the accounts that I know about, beings could not be termed, Homo sapiens. In Lemuria, the entities were a mixed form and formless souls manifesting in evolving material expression but far more advanced than we are today.”

Human level intelligence is now and continues to be assisted by far greater intelligence. For example, the Sumerian texts pre-exist the Bible writings by thousands of years. Yet, in these texts, we find data that was rediscovered thousands of years later, data such as the planets in our solar system. All ancient cultures on Earth uniformly held that humans were created by ‘gods’. 

The Bible specifically refers to the Hebrew, ‘Elohim’ (gods) as those who created us in their image. In years to come the term, Annunaki will become well known. 

The Annunaki was an ancient space race that visited the Earth several times and bioengineered humans from a more rudimentary animal form.

“It is my belief that the Anunnaki created the artificial structures already seen on Mars (yet not popularly known today, as they will be in the future) in the distant past.”

The industrial age ended a few decades ago. It did not simply end like a book chapter but slowly faded as it was replaced by the digital age, the age of communications, as humans began to hard wire connectivity and are jumping beyond hard wiring to wireless. 

The early years will be chaotic as the human mind begins to adapt to an entirely new way of being. All of science will change. Some of the first changes to appear will be in medicine. 

Computers, today mostly mainframe, will begin to diminish in size. (1984 statement). When we study what we term Quantum Mechanics, we realize that the firm, solid reality we once trusted and could count on, not only does not actually exist but what is there is a total fabrication.
