Experiment: Reading in Spirals

Select a a short passage from a book randomly.
Read the passage three times out loud.
The first time you read it read as you would ordinarily.
The second time read it slower. Put all of your attention on it and understand what you are reading as you are reading it.
The third time read the passage extremely slowly. Take your time with each word. Feel the sound and shape of each tiny letter, each word and each phrase, as if they were musical utterances. Imagine that the true content of the passage only exists in the silence between each word.
Record your observations.
