  1. Is speed reading possible?

    I should have asked, is it possible to dissociate thinking and speaking? Is it possible to read without the internal speaking? This is the important and difficult thing
  2. Do u think speed reading is possible? You need to read without the subvocalization, as thinking with images. Some people say they can do it, like a former US president (Kennedy?). In my case I always subvocalize, I can't avoid it.
  3. This is an important part of the human body, the joint between the atlas and the occiput. Do you know some technique to open this important spot, besides tucking chin in? In Alexander technique they lay down on a mat with the head under two paperback books, in order to make it go forward, but I would like to know other ways to work this area.
  4. Can u explain how to open the occiput? I don't fully understand ur explanation
  5. Stoicism - your thoughts ?

    yes, i don't want to do it right now for the same reason, i have too many blockages, first i need to address them
  7. the importance of the neck

    Interesting, it seems u understand this well. But what to do if our cervicals are misaligned so we are fucked up? How to fix this ?
  8. The difficult and important thing is to read without subvocalizating. I have tried several times and i can't avoid hearing the speaking while reading. I guess it is due to habit. Feldenkrais says it is possible to dissociate thinking and speaking, so u can think in images or relations. This way u improve reading speed but also thinking becomes more powerful

    I can only laugh reading your comments. Are u talking about a god or about a person who died of cancer even before his 70s? Lol
  10. the importance of the neck

    The neck and head alignment is key as emphasized by Alexander technique snd Feldenkrais. But it is difficult to do, u need good propioception
