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.”

The Orphan Factory (The Orphan Trilogy Book 2)

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?

In Chapter 1 (Genius techniques of the elite) we reveal our thinking on education – both the mainstream variety and the secret, or hidden, variety only certain favored people have access to.

It has long been speculated that secret societies, mystery schools, intelligence agencies and other clandestine organizations have advanced learning methods superior to anything taught in even the most prestigious universities. Methods which are only ever taught to the chosen few – initiates who have all sworn an oath to keep the group’s syllabus in house and never reveal any of the teachings to outsiders.

On the rare occasions the public get wind of these types of advanced learning techniques – usually via information leaked to the Internet, sometimes via published books – they are seldom tested or given the attention they deserve and so largely remain in obscurity. One reason for this could be the advanced techniques are often not comprehensible because whoever is behind them has withheld the overall curriculum.

There’s many a tale of mysterious figures from secretive groups mastering skills, languages and even complex career paths so quickly that most would say it’s impossible.

But that opinion assumes we common people know of, or have access to, all the learning methods known to man.

If we are to assume there are superior learning methods not taught in our mainstream education system then this naturally leads to other questions.

What if your child’s top-notch education is actually a second-rate education?

Or, if you are a student, what if that professor you look up to is no mastermind, but just a tool of an inferior learning institution?

None of this is to disrespect formal education. It plays a vital role in society and the betterment of Mankind, and only a fool would doubt the importance of getting a good education.

Nor are we suggesting there isn’t the odd learning institution that teaches at least some accelerated learning techniques, although such establishments would probably exist on the fringes of mainstream education.

The Montessori system is possibly one such example as it allows children to have greater freedom of expression and to learn in playful and organic ways.

Successful alumni of the Montessori education system include Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, tennis champion Roger Federer and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

In general, however, accelerated learning methods are more likely to be found outside the modern education system.

Let’s face it, wherever in the world you go, real prodigies are the exception not the norm in the present system. Those rare individuals whom society labels as geniuses are almost always freaks of nature and are naturally gifted rather than being diligent students who became geniuses as a result of their education.
