@ jameshogg I've heard of this but I am a bit skeptical of it to be honest. What research has been done on it?

Here is an example of what I mean. Everyone sees things a certain way. As kids we are taught to read a certain way. Now you need to change that mentality and look at the information as something that can be inhaled with you eyes. The key visual in origin. As I said we are trained to ignore peripheral vision until something makes us look in that direction. The idea of taking full paragraphs and read them at once has to do with how much you can stretch your line of sight. This explains it much better.
