Speed writing is the last of many intelligence-boosting techniques — some proven, some not — we explore in our bestselling GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ

speed writingHowever, it’s only right to add a disclaimer, pointing out that to our knowledge no studies have been done on it whatsoever. In fact, we are not aware of anyone else ever having mentioned it before – at least not in the way we approach it.

Certainly, there are numerous books and websites devoted to writing manuscripts quickly, but we aren’t talking about writers completing entire novels super-fast or students writing essays or letters in half the normal time.

Ours is simply an unusual little speed writing technique we discovered by accident and noticed it worked wonderfully on many occasions and always when we were severely time pressured. We consider this fortuitous discovery an important ingredient in our successes as published authors and feature film screenwriters.

The following excerpt from Genius Intelligence explains the technique:

This technique, like many of the others listed in this book, no doubt relates to outrunning the conscious mind and going so fast that the superior subconscious is forced to completely take over.

So, as the name suggests, you write so quickly that you don’t even know what you’re writing anymore. The goal is not to get instantly well-written text, but rather stream-of-consciousness stuff that you can revise and give clearer meaning to later.

According to our experiences, the resulting stream will usually have pearls within it, but a lot will need to be edited out as well.

Some of our best plot ideas or character decisions in our novels and film scripts have come using this speed writing technique. We just write super-fast and almost without thinking – maybe for five minutes or so – and more often than not what we wrote solved a major storyline issue or character problem.

It seems that certain insights can only come in this manner – or at least come more easily – as opposed to writing at regular speed. Sometimes you hit a brick wall when writing novels or screenplays. Something is missing and that something cannot be rectified with the conscious mind no matter how hard you try.

 

writer

We’ve also found speed writing is one way to solve the dreaded writer’s block.

Whether you use this method to add to an existing draft of a document, or whether you’re still attempting to complete a first draft, it works. We’ve proven it to our own satisfaction on numerous occasions.

Speed writing is not just for authors of course. It can be used to good effect by others – students who may be writing essays, for example, or business executives drafting reports or preparing finance proposals. It can even be used in your personal life when you’re facing a dilemma and cannot think of any solutions with your conscious mind – in this case you can speed write a list of possible options and see what your subconscious mind delivers to you.

If you want to test the method we use, try the following: put yourself under a time constraint by setting an alarm clock for 5-10 minutes then tell yourself you must write as much as you’d normally write in 45-60 minutes. Go! Until the alarm clock rings, don’t judge yourself or censor yourself or analyze anything – simply write as much as you can, as quickly as you can.

During the process it may feel like you’re writing utter garbage, but if our experiences are anything to go by, there will at least be some gems you can retain or use to vastly improve whatever it is you’re writing.

Our theory on why speed writing works is that you are not only forcing yourself to operate at speeds that only the subconscious mind can keep up with, but you are also not analyzing, censoring or critiquing what you write as you go (another bad trait of the conscious mind).

The best ideas often seem ridiculous at first and this technique allows you to just get all ideas out of your head and onto paper so you can consider them later.

Exactly how does speed writing relate to genius intelligence? Well, the connection is totally unproven, but instinct and personal experience tells us that, if done correctly (trance-like and without hesitation), you’ll tap into that great reservoir of the subconscious mind where all genius abilities come from.

A final point: when speed writing, it’s immaterial whether you write with pen in hand or use a computer keyboard. That said, we find speed writing seems to flow better when handwriting text – almost as if the pen’s a natural extension of the hand, allowing thoughts and words to flow directly from the brain onto the writing pad.

While researching our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, we were surprised to learn that many of history’s most renowned geniuses were physically ambidextrous, or equally proficient with their right and left hands. These include scientific and artistic giants such as Albert Einstein, Michelangelo, Nikola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci.

Einstein ambidextrous.

Given that less than 1% of the population are truly ambidextrous, we immediately wondered if that was just a coincidence, or was the ambidexterity of these individuals somehow crucial to the genius abilities each possessed?

Although more research needs to be done and there are some scientists who have suggested undesirable mental traits result from being ambidextrous, brain scans have revealed one telling statistic that may explain the seemingly high instance of geniuses in the ambidextrous population.

That statistic reveals that unlike right-handers, ambidextrous people have almost completely symmetrical brains. Meaning they are naturally in the all-important whole brain state. Right handers, on the other hand, generally have strong left brain dominance. Lefties often have brain symmetry as well, but not to the extent that ambidextrous people do.

You’ll recall throughout Genius Intelligence we have referred to the whole brain mode (aka hemispheric synchronization) being the ideal state for accessing higher intelligences. So, could acquiring ambidexterity be one way of bringing out latent genius abilities?

Digging deeper, we found a Psychology Today article on the history and neuroscience of left-handed, right-handed and ambidextrous people. Published on August 12, 2013, and written by bestselling author and athlete Christopher Bergland, the article surmises that the ultimate state for genius-level intelligence is to create brain symmetry and to be as close as possible to ambidextrous with your hands.

Ambidexterity in motion.

Another article, published in (e) Science News on October 4, 2013, may also offer more specific insights. Headlined Well-connected hemispheres of Einstein’s brain may have sparked his brilliance, the article reports that “The left and right hemispheres of Albert Einstein’s brain were unusually well connected to each other and may have contributed to his brilliance, according to a new study conducted in part by Florida State University evolutionary anthropologist Dean Falk.”

So, if Einstein-like interconnectedness of brain hemispheres is the ultimate goal, then it seems being ambidextrous, or at least developing some ambidextrous traits, may facilitate this brain state.

A few techniques to develop ambidexterity include: write and draw with the wrong hand (i.e. left hand for Righties and right hand for Lefties); do household tasks with the wrong hand; play musical instruments that involve both hands such as piano, guitar or flute; learn how to juggle.

*************************************

Hypnotism is one way to achieve accelerated learning and optimum mental performance, and to prime the mind for intense concentration – as many scientific studies have shown. The technique as been used by countless renowned figures spanning numerous fields of expertise.

Hypnotherapy in Bristol with Hypnotherapist Sarah Mortimer

Albert Einstein was known to do hypnosis sessions every afternoon. The German-born theoretical physicist’s great theory of relativity discovery entered his mind during one of those sessions, and he used the hypnotic trance state to develop many of his other theories and formulas.

American inventor Thomas Edison used hypnotism on a regular basis – self-hypnosis in fact.

In Britain, Princess Diana utilized hypnosis to improve her public speaking skills, while Sir Winston Churchill was given post-hypnotic suggestions so he could stave off tiredness and endure long periods without sleep throughout WW2.

Several great classical music composers were hypnotism devotees. They include Seigei Rachmaninoff who, after a post-hypnotic suggestion given by early hypnosis specialist Nikolai Dahl, composed his much loved Second Piano Concerto; Mozart also used hypnotism as a creative aid and his opera Cosi Fan Tutte was entirely composed in a hypnotic trance.

Mozart…an early adopter of hypnosis.

Nineteenth Century British poet Lord Alfred Tennyson was known to regularly write poems in a hypnotic state.

While writing the feature film screenplay of Rocky, the then-unknown Sylvester Stallone used self-hypnosis tapes to boost willpower and creativity. Later, during each day of filming Rocky, in 1975, Stallone worked with well-regarded hypnotherapist Gil Boyne to help ensure the movie would become the blockbuster it turned out to be.

Continuing with the boxing theme, in Mike Tyson’s 2013 autobiography Undisputed Truth, Tyson mentions how he used hypnotism and self-hypnotism throughout his career, and specifically before each fight. He partly attributes this to his success in becoming a two-time World Heavyweight champion.

Tyson cites French psychologist Émile Coué’s self-hynotism methods, including autosuggestion, as being amongst those he used.

Coué’s 1922 book Self-Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion is recommended further reading on the subject of self-hypnotism.

Another famous athlete to use hypnosis for sports performance is Tiger Woods. The man who is arguably the greatest golf player of all time has been practicing hypnosis – both with a hypnotist and giving himself hypnotic suggestions – since his early teens. This period of his life was also when he started his extensive mental training with family friend and psychologist Dr. Jay Brunza.

Besides Tyson and Woods, another major sports star to have regularly used hypnosis during his career was Michael Jordan. The basketball legend was hypnotized before every game to enhance his mental focus. Furthermore, the entire Chicago Bulls team, which won six NBA championships during Jordan’s reign of supremacy in the 1990’s, incorporated hypnotherapy in their pregame routine to gain a psychological advantage over their opponents.

Jordan…hypnotized before games.

 

Subliminal education

Closely aligned with hypnosis are subliminal messages, which the latest research suggests may also have the potential to instruct the subconscious mind and access higher intelligence. Indeed, some hypnotists have been known to incorporate subliminal messages in hypnotic audio recordings made for clients or the public at large.

Subliminal messages – also known as subliminals – are probably more controversial and slightly less proven than hypnosis, however.

Subliminals are any sensory stimuli that occur below an individual’s threshold of conscious awareness. What this means is messages can be sent to your mind without you being aware of the fact.

Subliminal messaging is nothing new of course. The technique has been around at least since the advent of radio and television when subliminal advertising reared its ugly head, and by the late 20th Century a whole host of scientific studies had concluded subliminals were not remotely effective.

However, more recent studies have shown the reverse. Science may be beginning to show just how effective subliminals can be.

For example, new studies involving functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have revealed that subliminals activate crucial regions of the brain including the hippocampus, the amygdala, the primary visual cortex and the insular cortex.

Studies have universally shown that what you eat can definitely influence your intelligence. This is especially true for increasing the IQ of children.

brain food

It’s official…brain food boosts IQ.

We share our knowledge on this subject in a chapter titled ‘The high IQ diet’ in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

An excerpt from the book follows:

A 2011 article headed Food for thought – diet does boost your intelligence, by Richard Alleyne, Science Correspondent for UK newspaper The Telegraph, confirms that “Children brought up on healthy diets are more intelligent compared with their junk food eating counterparts, new research suggests.”

The article states, “Toddlers fed a diet packed high in fats, sugars, and processed foods had lower IQs than those fed pasta, salads and fruit, it was found. The effect is so great that researchers from the University of Bristol said those children with a “healthier” diet may get an IQ boost.

“Scientists stressed good diet was vital in a child’s early life as the brain grows at its fastest rate during the first three years of life.”

Children fed breast milk have also been shown to develop higher IQ’s.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), for example, is an omega-3 fatty acid found in breast milk, and a lack of DHA hinders brain development.

Large quantities of the fatty acid Lauric Acid are also found in breast milk and this, too, has major benefits for developing brains.

Breast milk is a wonderfully complex substance and scientists are still trying to figure out how exactly it has so many benefits for children’s brains.

However, it’s not just children who can increase their IQ’s with diet. Adults can, too.

Research has shown that certain foods, herbs and natural supplements can sharpen memory, lift mental performance and generally boost brain power.

These beneficial dietary items include:

  • Leafy greens and orange-red fruits and vegetables such as apricots, mangoes, red peppers and spinach, which all boost brain function as a result of their antioxidants and beta carotene properties.
  • Certain organic breakfast cereals – especially those fortified with folic acid – have many mental benefits.
  • Fresh seafood has a beneficial impact on the brain as a result of the biochemical roles played by the omega-3 fats and zinc content.
  • Nuts and seeds have essential fatty acids and phospho-lipids that aid brain nerve cells.
  • Protein-rich foods contain large amounts of the brain chemical dopamine, which increases mental alertness.
  • Ginkgo Biloba is a herb that improves blood flow to the brain and has been proven to be a valid way to increase memory and concentration powers.
  • Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a chemical compound that has been shown to assist with learning, focus and memory.
  • Vinpocetine is a plant extract that’s a cerebral vasodilator – meaning it widens blood vessels in the brain and allows more blood to enter the head for oxygenation to occur. The result is greater mental alertness. Recent studies indicate Vinpocetine may also be one of the most powerful memory enhancers on the planet.

General rules for eating for brain optimization include:

  • Rather than eating one or two large meals, consume regular small meals throughout the day as this has positive psychological effects.
  • Eat enough carbohydrates as the brain needs glucose to function.
  • Never skip breakfast, otherwise blood sugar levels will drop by late morning and this will negatively affect memory.

There’s also some good news for alcohol lovers. Red wine, due to the grape content, has a protective agent called resveratrol, which scientific research has shown to stimulate brain cells. Beer can also be a brain-booster because of its high quantities of boron and B vitamins – both of which affect mental function.

However, the golden rule of everything in moderation definitely applies to the subject of alcohol and intelligence as overdrinking kills brain cells – never a good thing if you’re already low on brain cells or are looking to increase your intelligence!

*************************************

A renowned genius who has perhaps influenced as many lives as any other creative thinker in the modern era was Apple co-founder Steve Jobs (1955-2011). Although the history of his illustrious career in the tech industry has been well documented in books, movies and untold news articles, few are aware that Jobs was intensely interested in India – and in Yoga.

Steve Jobs and his beloved iPhone invention.

We detail this undisputed genius’s love affair with the Indian subcontinent, its people and its customs in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ. An excerpt from the book follows:

Yoga Journal published an article on September 11, 2013 about the master inventor’s lifelong relationship with the Eastern discipline.

“Steve Jobs will long be remembered as an innovator whose vision changed the way we interact with the world through technology. But what many people don’t know is that Jobs was guided by an intense interest in spirituality and yoga.”

In 1974, shortly after he had dropped out of college, Jobs traveled to India as a backpacker. He stayed on the the subcontinent for seven months and during this period he first discovered and began to practice Yoga. He cited the experiences he had of meeting Yogis at ashrams all over India as being among the most influential of his life.

The 19 year-old returned to the US an altogether different person. Two years later, in 1976, Jobs co-founded Apple (with fellow college dropout Steve Wozniak) after having the revolutionary idea of personal computing for the masses.

Some say that Jobs’ statement “I was worth over $1,000,000 when I was 23, and over $10,000,000 when I was 24, and over $100,000,000 when I was 25, and it wasn’t that important because I never did it for the money,” was directly inspired by this passage from the holy Indian scripture Bhagavad Gita:“Relinquishing attachment to the fruits of work, always contented, independent (of material rewards), the wise do not perform any (binding) action even in the midst of activities”.

Whether that’s true or not is open to conjecture, but reportedly, the only book Jobs ever downloaded to his iPad was Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda.

Product Details

A favorite of Jobs.

And in a 2013 interview with CNET.com, Marc Benioff, former business associate and close friend of Jobs, said guests at the iPhone/iPad/iPod creator’s memorial service were “each given a copy of the classic book Autobiography of a Yogi as per Jobs’ wishes.”

Benioff added, “He had the incredible realization that his intuition was his greatest gift and he needed to look at the world from the inside out.”

*************************************

The physics of faster-than-light (also known as superluminal) phenomena may hold great potential for accelerated learning – and we explore this in our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

An excerpt from the book follows:

Professor Regis Dutheil, a quantum physicist and consciousness researcher, was one of the first scientists to present a model that described the mind as a field of superluminal matter. He claimed that the human brain is an organic computer that transmits information.

Subatomic Neutrino Tracks

Neutrons traveling faster than light?

According to Dutheil’s theories, the mind, or consciousness, is essentially a field of tachyons or superluminal matter located on the other side of the light barrier in superluminal space-time.

In his book L’homme Superlumineux, Dutheil presents his hypothesis that consciousness is a field of superluminal matter belonging to the true fundamental universe and that our world is merely a subliminal holographic projection of it.

If you think Dutheil’s theories sound a bit like the quantum physics concepts explored in the blockbuster Hollywood film The Matrix, you’re not alone.

In his 2014 book Superluminal Particles and Hypercomputation, leading Japanese scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha claims that the superiority of the human brain is due to the superluminal particles generated in the microtubules of the brain.

The blurb for Superluminal Particles and Hypercomputation mentions that the book “describes a series of theoretical explorations probing the possibility that superluminal particles exist, and if so the consequences their existence may hold for biology and computing. Starting from the standpoint of a model of the brain based on superluminal tunneling photons, the authors included in this volume have described theoretically the possibility of a brain-like computer that would be more powerful than Turing machines (conventional silicon processors), would allow non-Turing computations (hyper-computation), and that may hold the key to the origin of human consciousness itself”.

A former senior employee of Japan’s Ministry of Defense, where he developed naval weapon systems, Dr. Musha claims this generated superluminal field connects individuals with the outer field of the Universe, and he contends this may explain human consciousness as well as the collective mind of Mankind.

Dr. Musha…human consciousness explained?

Dr. Musha’s theory relates to the quantum mechanics scale known as decoherence, which measures the time to maintain the quantum coherence between particles. If the decoherence time is long in an individual’s brain, it permits the person to connect to the outer superluminal field easily.

“I think that the activity of superluminal particles can be maintained by the structure of the metamaterial in the microtubules,” says Dr. Musha. “The metamaterial has a non-natural property such as negative refractive index, which permits superluminal evanescent photons to move loosely in the nervous system. If this structure malfunctions in an individual, many problems can occur such as Alzheimer’s disease.”

Dr. Musha believes decoherence time can be extended by mental training. If this is true, then genius abilities like photographic memory and polymathing could result from the right sort of training.

If an individual’s brain can connect with the superluminal field which is part of all other living organisms, then it may be possible for that individual to come from an awareness of what has been termed the universal brain.

Dr. Musha claims this could explain the extraordinary abilities of the human mind, such as the enigma of Indian mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan.

Ramanujan found many mysterious formulas related to Number Theory and often said, “An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God.”

Superluminal Particles and Hypercomputation also proposes that the true nature of the human electromagnetic field may be similar to that of the Universe as a whole.

Dr. Musha continues, “The ancient Indian Vedas texts have lent a comparable view of unified consciousness with a key difference being the process of human ascension from stage to stage. Instead of oneness with the Universe, the Vedic vision of consciousness emphasizes the importance of attaining knowledge and pure intelligence.

“This is similar to the Vedic concept that the totality of our consciousness is comprised of three levels: the subconscious, the conscious, and the superconscious mind. These levels of consciousness represent differing degrees of intensity of awareness. Intuition and heightened mental clarity flow from superconscious awareness. The conscious mind is limited by its analytical nature, and therefore sees all things as separate and distinct.

“We may be puzzled by a certain situation because it seems unrelated to other events and it’s difficult to draw a clear course of action. By contrast, because the superconscious mind is intuitive and sees all things as part of a whole, it can readily draw solutions.

“According to theoretical studies,” Dr. Musha continues, “superluminal particles permit us to conduct infinite computations within a finite duration of time. Thus they can give us an extraordinary capability of computation, which is far greater than that of silicon processors.”

Dr. Musha also believes if science can utilize superluminal particles for computer technology, it will one day be possible to build a hypercomputer system which has its own consciousness – like the HAL 9000 computer in the Stanley Kubrick film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The famous red eye of HAL 9000.

The 2014 Luc Besson-directed film Lucy may also portray the superluminal field which is said to be omnipresent in the Universe. At the end of the film, Scarlett Johansson in the title role of genius Lucy becomes just that: omnipresent in the Universe.

Some of these superluminal theories about human intelligence may relate to what ancient mystics referred to as the Akashic field, which was said to be an etheric database of total knowledge about the Earth’s entire history.

If it is indeed possible to activate superluminal particles in the brain – whether by advanced yogic breathing techniques, smart drugs, or magnetic/electrical technologies to stimulate neurons – then perhaps every human really does have the potential to access this vast, invisible information field and prove that “the knowledge of all things is possible,” as Leonardo da Vinci once stated.

However, for the time being at least, more research needs to be done on this particular field of science before geniuses can be created at will.
