1.3 Million Words A Minute!


Jose Silva

Mr. Jose Silva - the undisputed pioneer in the field of mind sciences - began his research into the mind and human potential in 1944.


After 22 years of research, in 1966 he established the world's number 1 Mind Training System, which eventually spread to more than 100 foreign countries with millions of graduates and his books sold over one million copies.


The Silva system was the first program to teach people to function at the alpha brain wave level, to use the right brain hemisphere to think with, and to develop and use intuition (ESP). In fact most gurus in the field are Silva graduates.


Silva techniques have been know to actually result in empowering their practitioners in creating external circumstances or what is commonly known as manifestation of thought.


In 1997, after another 30 years of experience, like any genius, Mr. Silva improved upon his old course and turned his attention to the subject that had always interested him the most: How to obtain guidance from higher intelligence, so that we can fulfill our mission in life. The result, shortly before his passing in 1999, was the Silva UltraMind ESP System

Georgi Lozanov

Dr. Georgi Lozanov

   A research psychologist and medical doctor at the University of Sofia Bulgaria (1956), obtained a PhD for his work on the application of suggestion in the field of medicine and education. He investigated the phenomenon of hypermnesia, photographic memory, worked with people with extraordinary mental powers (a Russian who could multiply four figure numbers faster than a computer and Indian mystics who could remember 10,000 verses word perfect), etc. His conclusion and theories were built into a learning system that is in daily use around the world. In 1979, Lozanov published his book Suggestology and the Outlines of Suggestopedia (Gordon and Breach, New York, 1979) and came to the U.S. to train a small number of teachers.
 One of the first models of teaching that Lozanov developed was an approach to teaching foreign language to adults. After 5 weeks (3 1/2 hour sessions, 5 days a week), adults uniformly achieved a basic conversational ease in words, testing above 90% accuracy in recognition and recall, and 65-70% retrieval capacity. Memory retention was excellent (the expected curve of forgetting did not occur) and long term memory results were attained. An added advantage was that the students described the course as among the most enjoyable learning experiences they had ever had. Lozanov demonstrated that through a carefully orchestrated learning environment, learning can be accelerated by a factor of 3-10 times and can be enjoyable and  tension free.

Robert Monroe

In 1956 the firm set up a research and development division to study the effects of various sound patterns on human consciousness, including the feasibility of learning during sleep. Never one to ask others to do something he would not, Monroe often used himself as a test subject for this research. In 1958, a significant result emerged-Monroe began experiencing a state of consciousness separate and apart from the physical body. He described the state as an "out of body experience," which has since become a generic term in consciousness literature. These spontaneous experiences altered the course of Monroe's life and the direction of his professional efforts.

While continuing his successful broadcasting activities, Monroe began to experiment and research the expanded forms of human consciousness that he was experiencing. He chronicled his early explorations with a reporter's objectivity and eye for detail in a groundbreaking book, Journeys Out of the Body, which was published in 1971. This public record of his out of body experiences in states beyond space, time, and death has comforted countless people who've encountered paranormal incidents. It also attracted the attention of academic researchers, medical practitioners, engineers, and other professionals.

Ever the pragmatic business leader, Monroe, and a growing group of fellow researchers, began to work on methods of inducing and controlling this and other forms of consciousness in a laboratory setting. This research led to the development of a noninvasive and easy to use audio-guidance technology known as hemispheric synchronization or Hemi-Sync®. In 1974, the original research group was expanded to become The Monroe Institute, an organization dedicated to conducting seminars in the control and exploration of human consciousness. A year later, Monroe was issued the first of three patents for the Hemi-Sync® method of altering brain states through sound.

Throughout the next 20 years Monroe continued to explore, research, and teach others about expanded states of human consciousness and practical methods of enhancing human potential. He developed a series of multi-day workshops that enable participants to personally experience realms beyond physical time-space reality, built a campus for teaching and research, and created a portfolio of audio exercises designed to focus attention, reduce stress, improve meditation, enhance sleep, and manage pain among other applications. In 1985 he wrote a second book, titled Far Journeys, which expanded upon his personal investigations of nonphysical reality. In 1994 he followed suit with a third book, Ultimate Journey, which explores basic truths about the meaning and purpose of life and what lies beyond the limits of our physical world. Monroe died in 1995, at the age of 80. His legacy continues today and has touched the lives of literally millions of people all around the world.

Richard & Donna Welch
Richard Welch owned a speed reading school in Arizona and found within a very short amount of time, startling things began to take place in the classroom. Several students had broken an existing world record in speed-reading, which researched to be 100,000 words per minute, with increased comprehension. Back in
1976, two students, a sixteen year old boy and a thirty-five year old accountant, exceeded 175,000 words per minute and were still climbing. A few weeks later, the accountant, peaked at an amazing 422,000 words per minute and tested with 85% comprehension on completely foreign material. After that, in 1976, another 16 year old boy Mentally Photographed at 606,000 words per minute. In front of 30 educators, he took a 100 question in-depth test on the book, scoring a 90% on the material, and he was dyslexic!

 Tests confirmed that young children, fourth and fifth graders, could rapidly grasp his method. It raised their reading and vocabulary skills several grade years with only a few hours of using this method. Thank you Richard and Donna Welch!

 We at Light Speed Learning are now taking this all to a whole new level. Many are asking "is this Silva? is this ...?

Our Answer is NO. We note many others in our history page because we would like to provide our reader with an understanding that many others before us have recorded the minds abilities to soar way beyond what we have been taught our limitations are.  Light Speed Learning is absolutely NEW to the world. NO ONE IN THE WORLD has done or is doing what we are doing. We have 'paved the way' in a new modality. Our techniques for rapid data delivery are unique. We hit speeds with our software of 1.3 million words a minute and clearly show the student how to recall that information. Although we are unique, we truly recognize and  respect those pioneers before us, that kept the flame alive. We believe we are here to humbly assist mankind in reclaiming their natural learning abilities..
