>>7589385 Dispose of everything you ever learned when you were a kid, because you were obviously brought up completely wrong and need so start from scratch. But it's going to be very difficult and it might just be easier killing yourself.
>>7589385 alot of people don't realize but screaming internally is the most efficient exercise you can perform to stop subvocalizing. i recommend focusing on screaming internally anywhere from 10-12 hours a day,
Don't. What marks you out as a good or a bad reader is not your speed, it's what you get out of what you read. Words are not just ideas, they are sounds too, and those sounds play a big part in the music of the language. Not to mention the beat, prosody and rhythm which you'll miss if you speed read. If you've understood the idea of what is happening, but not got a sense of the texture of the writing, then you've missed the part of it that makes it art.
I don't know if speed readers get as much out of a text as subvocalisers do, but it would greatly surprise me. Imagine speed reading Paradise Lost. What would be the point? Especially with poetry, people should strive to read slower, not faster -- even aloud, if desired -- since it gives an opportunity actually to reflect on and relate to what they're reading. Quality > quantity.
Imagine the sound of an egregious cock slamming, this is how you must read, with the thunderous screaming of phallic violence cumming across the sky of your membranes. There can be no step or attunement or consequence in the action, the reading must be an action in and of itself decisively beastial.
Bang bang pump out the words in your head without thought or reading but being.
>>7591507 For me, a big part of reading comes from the beauty of words and the way they are organized, I think I first vividly felt this while reading Shakespeare, quotes like "hell is empty and all the devils are here" or "i am in blood so far steeped..." are both very beautiful in the image they evoke and the iambic rhythm to them. I actually tried speed-reading the first chapter of Brave New World with spreeder. I had a general understanding of the plot and I'd lose concentration when a word I didn't know came up, or acronyms, I think. But I realized speed reading didn't come with what I actually enjoyed about reading, nor did it allow me to process and engage with the work I'm reading. Questions you would ask yourself like authors intentions, characters intentions, whatever you can imagine when you try to dialogue with fiction.
In any case, an exercise in speed reading could be fun if you have an exam and need to review your textbook or whatever, but I wouldn't use it otherwise.
>reading book (Crime and Punishment if you want to know) >suddenly, without even trying to do it, stop subvocalizing >cumbersome auditory processes in my brain are gone >ideas of the book are entering my head with greatest lucidity and efficiency >feels like playing a beautiful piece of music flawlessly, or flying in a dream >feel for the first time that I'm truly understanding literature >look at clock, realize I've read 20 pages in just a few minutes >go back to book, try to read without subvocalizing again >tfw no matter how hard I try, can't do it
My brain giveth and my brain taketh away. How do I make it give me this ability again? It felt so sweet.
>>7594614 This is definitely a stupid question, but what is supposed to happen when you don't subvocalize? I try to do it and just look at the words but after I finish a page I realize that I did not take in any of it. I tried to imagine what was happening so the book was like a movie in my mind, but this made me go slower than when I subvocalize.
People say to look at the word and take in the meaning rather than say it, but I have no idea what that is suppose to mean
