It all began 'by accident' as most of us are fond of saying. One day, ace teacher Yumiko Tobitani was doing a lesson with children at the Shichida child academy in Tokyo. She asked the children to quickly, then slowly, flick through the pages of a book for a total of thirty times. Each child had their own chair that they took to a spot where they felt most relaxed and proceeded to flick through the pages of the book. After finishing, they came back to their desks.
However there was one child who stayed back. Ms. Tobitani could see that this child looked really involved in the book and thought, "Oh well I'll just leave him to carry on". Just after she had done this she heard the sound of the chair being dragged back across the floor and there was the child back at his desk. Then he simply said, "That was really fun." When kids show some kind of a change in their speech or behavior Yumiko generally tries to listen to them. So she asked this particular student what was going on.
The astonishing reply led to the creation of QSR. The eight year old student said, "I saw pictures coming out of the pages and I understood everything in the book". Yumiko, through her long experience as a teacher in non-linear learning, instantly realized a function of the right brain's imagery was at work with this child. The right brain is deeply connected to speed. So when a book is flipped through at high speed the words are transformed into images and come out as pictures. Naturally the other kids had no idea what was going on and just sat there amazed.
She decided to have some other children have a try at it. All of them did exactly the same, flipping through the pages. Amazingly all of them saw images coming out. The right brain has the ability to communicate information so that it is understandable to everyone. This is called resonance. Therefore when everybody has a desire to learn it or the desire to see it, this ability gets transmitted to everyone as a resonating vibration. Because of this an entirely new way of reading books was born and Yumiko Tobitani decided to call it, 'Quantum Speed Reading'. This was to be a momentous event in the field of creative education.
