Yes I can read this with no problem. GOD have a great sense of humor and I am enjoying every moment of it. Love peace free. Thank you. Now go laughing all through life because I cracked the secret code for the mystery of life on earth. What is it? It is right in front of your eyes. Now that is funny for those who can see it, hahaha you can now laugh at yourself because I am laughing at myself. thank you. Go in peace.
While I was reading it, the "voice" I was hearing my own reading in wasn't my own "internal reading voice" (my usual, fast-talking, lots-of-different-tones, voice). Instead, I found I was "hearing" a kind of staccato and monotone reading version, kind of like the things that help people like Stephen Hawking (only not in the electronic voice). Something different was definitely going on as far as reading it went. I think it did either break up or slow down my own reading rhythm.
Nope. I actually think that I was able to read it as easily and quickly as I would have had it been spelled all correctly. That was actually pretty amazing! Incorrect spelling is a huge pet peeve of mine, too, which makes this really troubling for me!
I wonder if it was something we really needed to understand to figure out an answer of some sort, if it would be difficult? Maybe since the actual meaning behind the writing wasn't difficult to understand it made reading it so much easier. I had zero difficulty but when I'm learning something in school I might have to read correctly written words over again to understand the meaning since my brain is actually learning something for the first time.
Interesting. Like many fellow Hubbers, I'm not surprised that most of us can read jumbled letters and still get the words right.
True, it slows us down a bit. Lisa's observation is an interesting one as well..I know what she means. I also agree with Lifeallstar1...the subject matter has some bearing on understanding the context.
Your eyesight plays a part too. Actually your brain does most of the work of 'seeing', the eye muscles mostly obedient to the brain impulses.
I have an interesting book on eyesight, which says that, in perfect 20/20 vision, there's only one, very fine point of perfect focus, and that's directly in the centre of your current point of interest. All other object details become progressively less clear and less colorful as your perception moves out to the periphery of where you're looking. Your peripheral vision is mostly to pick up movement. Of course, these hundreds of 'snapshots' per second are fused together at lightning speed, so you 'think' you're seeing everything clearly..the persistence of memory.
This is why staring, and diffusing your vision is bad for you..you're forcing your eye muscles to do something they're not supposed to.
