Developing a genius mindset essentially comes down to two things: operating at speed and using the subconscious mind more than the conscious. This intuitive or relaxed approach to study is the polar opposite of traditional and mainstream forms of education.
As we wrote in The Orphan Factory, book two in our thriller series, “The subconscious was always favored over the everyday conscious mind, which was considered too slow to be effective.”
We explore this in depth in our new release book GENIOUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.
Apart from some artistic subjects like music or dance, learning institutions generally require pupils to concentrate hard at all times. In other words, students have no choice but to always use their conscious minds, thereby suppressing the great reservoir of the subconscious.
When we are forced to think s-l-o-w-l-y like this our brain functions at well below optimum levels. That’s why school students often feel exhausted as studying in this fashion is incredibly draining.
But how can we feel mentally drained when neuroscientists and brain researchers agree we each only use a tiny percentage of our brain?
In our thriller series, our orphan-operatives often go into a daydream state whenever they need answers to life-and-death situations. This is because when you defocus you allow your intuitive self, or your subconscious mind, to deliver the answers you need. It just happens, without reaching for it.
We’ve all experienced pondering a problem all day long only to find we receive the solution when forgetting about the problem and thinking of something else. When we stop concentrating so hard, we allow our subconscious to flourish, and those who do this more than others are sometimes called geniuses.
As head of Chicago’s (fictitious) Pedemont Orphanage, Tommy Kentbridge says to his students in The Orphan Factory, “The subconscious mind is where all higher intelligences exist. Every genius throughout history – Tesla, Einstein, Da Vinci – tapped into the infinite power of their subconscious minds.”
A factory-line for geniuses.
Studies have shown the subconscious mind can process around 11 million bits of information per second. The conscious mind, however, can only process about 15 to 16 bits of information per second.
Quite a difference!
One of the best ways to bring the subconscious mind into the equation is to outrun the conscious mind by going so fast it literally can’t keep up. So, at Chicago’s Pedemont Orphanage, our orphans do everything at speed. They’re also taught how to learn things indirectly instead of directly. By skirting around the edges of complex subjects, the children never get information overload or lose their way.
As we wrote in The Ninth Orphan, “In the tradition of Leonardo da Vinci and history’s other great polymaths, the children were taught how to fully understand anything by using an advanced mental technique where they would simply life their minds into comprehension.”
To life your mind into comprehension is once again the polar opposite of modern education systems which imply there’s only one way to learn: consciously and with intense concentration.
While this indirect way of learning may sound flaky, it is actually backed up by hard science and is not remotely mystical. This approach is about brainwaves and understanding, or recognizing, the optimal state for learning.
When you hit the right groove, it’s possible to learn quickly and in a satisfying, even enjoyable, fashion.
It is that singularity of mind top sportsmen and martial arts masters achieve. Psychologists sometimes refer to this ultimate mental state as the zone, but it’s really just about having the most effective brainwaves for learning.
A high quality brain scan.
Any time study feels laborious the student is most likely in the beta brainwave, which occurs when the conscious mind is governing. A beta-dominant mind is the perfect recipe for mediocrity and boredom.
The subconscious mind comes into play in other less common brainwaves such as alpha, gamma, theta and delta. These brainwaves have also been shown to be activated when test subjects are laughing, daydreaming, meditating, singing, dancing or spontaneously moving about.
Now how many math or English teachers would tolerate those activities in their classrooms?
What if there really is a much quicker, less methodical way of learning that allows you to learn without learning?
Sounds paradoxical, doesn’t it?
“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.” –Arthur Schopenhauer
