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.
