PhotoReading is Grounded in Leading Edge

Three powerful technologies of human development make the PhotoReading course work.
The first is superlearning; it is also called accelerated learning, integrative learning, or suggestology. It was developed by Dr. Georgi Lozanov in Bulgaria in the '60s and '70s primarily for the rapid acquisition of language. Peter Kline, one of the nation's top accelerative learning experts, hooked up with us in 1985 to integrate accelerative learning into the PhotoReading program. This is of value to you for two reasons: the first is that we can teach the PhotoReading system to you in an incredibly short period of time—just two to three days; and the second is so that when you get out in real life and use the system, you'll be able to process information at an accelerated rate.
The second technology of human development is neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP. This was developed by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. Among other things, NLP says that if one person performs a particular task he or she must click a certain set of circuits in a particular order. If another person is to perform basically the same task, this person must also click those same circuits in that same particular order. With NLP you can figure out how one person is clicking and teach another to click the same way.
That is what Paul Scheele did with PhotoReading. He trained with Bandler and Grinder in the late '70s and early '80s, and he used his expertise in NLP to figure out how natural PhotoReaders were clicking their circuits. He then developed a program to teach everyone to click the same way, so that everyone gets the same results, so that everyone can PhotoRead.
The third technology is with preconscious processing. This is about learning below the threshold of conscious awareness. Subconsciously. Learning with the unconscious mind, the inner mind. And that is what PhotoReading is all about because we bypass the conscious mind and dump the information directly into the nonconscious.
