This is why Rome won so many battles. Enemy spies would wait for them to read battle plans to themselves while mouthing the words; trouble was, they had learned not to!
Spoken language is still processed through the auditory sense and centers. Your brain cannot tell the difference between things you actually hear and things that you have only imagined hearing. Silent reading is imagining the sound of words being spoken. The big question, is what kind of voice do you hear reading the words? (I hear my own voice as it sounded when I was 5.)
^Which is also why if you are close to someone, you often imagine their voices as you read their text messages.
This is such a weird thing to think about. Since I’ve pretty much always read to myself since I speed read.
I’ve always loved reading. The moment I learned how to read silently was honestly the most magical thing I can remember.
I need more people to notice this.
Has everyone seen this?

They made Batman into a Sky Dancer.
Did they think we wouldn’t know?
Have you ever wanted to have dinner with LeVar Burton? Or maybe try on his Star Trek visor? Also wanna help kids all over the world read and learn cool things? WELL NOW YOU CAN!
LeVar Burton— my dad— has started a new kickstarter (click the link) to fund his awesome Reading Rainbow app. The prizes are really cool and involve people like Patrick Stewart and Laurence Fishburne!
If you can donate 5 dollars, please do. If you can afford more, you rock. If you can’t, please signal boost to do your part!
We’re counting on you, Tubmlr— the community of nerds and awesome people.
Sharing this because it’s a good cause. For anyone who isn’t familiar with “reading rainbow” it’s a show Levar Burton hosted before, during and after TNG on public television in the states. Quite successful and popular, it advocated literacy for kids and taught them about the joys of reading, showed them great books to read, and was just a great program. Sadly it ended in 2009, not by anyone’s choice, and now Levar is seeking to revive it. And at the speed people are donating, I think he’ll be successful. So chip in if you can!
Is it time for the telepathic internet sing-a-long? I THINK IT IS!
