Spritz claims that information retention rates on "spritzed" content are equal to or higher than that of traditional text block reading, and that some of its testers are now
comfortably ingesting content at 1000 words per minute
with no loss of information retention.
That’s Tolstoy’s 1,440 page behemoth War and Peace dispatched in a single 10 hour sitting, if you had the concentration for it


Here’s 250 words per minute:

This looks very interesting. I am one of those people that have some kind of epilepsy problem when things flash on a computer screen. Do you think this would have an adverse effect on me?

Long ago when I worked for the Dept of the Army they sent me to a speed reading course at the Catholic University of America in Wash, DC. It was amazing and surprising how much one retains by just seeing a word in context rather than reading each word individually. The method they taught was to use your finger under the line of text, moving your finger as fast as you could following it with your eyes down the page. At the time I had a job requiring lots of reading of regulations and manuals.

I use the same method with the cursor and that's one of the reasons I prefer the track ball for its speed and agility.

Hmm maybe you should avoid your resonant trigger frequencies and any harmonics .

I am going to have to research this because it never occured to me that it was certain frequencies or harmonics. My grandson has a game that he plays with a fake guitar hooked up to the tv and when he was playing it I started feeling queasy, then everything in the room started looking like it was moving. That is how I found out to begin with.

I'm wondering you could be experiencing migraines. They have many different symptoms, not only just a severe headache. My daughter-in-law suffers them and can be brought on by the super bright blueish headlights that some vehicles have; a ceiling fan with both the fan and the lights on...she often see it as a "flash" ...

Some things that can bring on migraines:
