I am confused on what and how to use the purpose questions for the prepare step as I know there are four questions to it? I have aspergers and ocd so find it hard to grasp it.

Hi, keep it simple. Just think of your purpose for reading the material during the Prepare step and continue with the process.

But what kind of purpose questions can I ask that's why I am struggling with it?

Because if I haven't even looked at the book at all so how would I know?

What do you need the information for? Be as specific as possible. Needing to take action on the information is best, not just having a casually interest in the information. In other words, you would not have a good purpose to PhotoRead a book to learn to improve your tennis game if you were not planning to play tennis. See pages 24 & 25 in the PhotoReading book.

When I photo-read books it's not that there is a level is there that I should for example only photo-read easy books first?

So we can't just photoread something just for the overall information about what I want for example if reading something I have a general interest in? or how would I do that if I am not specific?

If in the prepare step we can't look at the front and back cover of the book how would we know what it is about to have a purpose?

Just noticed that do I have to pay attention to photoreading audio one where it tells me about looking at the front cover only with the photoreading demo? then I can know what my purpose is?

With the purpose questions, how would I know when to move on to the next questions as there seem to be four questions that have different sections?

William,
You seem to be getting too hung-up on purpose as well as thinking there are "have to" rules with the process. Keep it simple. The PhotoReading Whole Mind System is flexible. You can fine tune for yourself. Purpose changes as you get into a book, so, start with something general if needed and change your purpose as you continue activating it.

You don't need to ask if questions are received. They are being received. The US was on holiday last week. Most businesses like ours was closed Thursday through Sunday. Like I mentioned before, I'm the only one at the company that responds to PhotoReading questions if others don't. So far no one else is responding to you. Posting questions almost daily is beyond acceptable for this venue. We are not here to teach the course. You can find most answers in the book, the audios, or the archives.

Going forward I'll only answer your questions once a week. Best to assume that you are know how to PhotoRead and activate if you have gone through the course. Just keep applying the process on book after book.

Thanks,
Patrick

PS - I don't understand this question: When I photo-read books it's not that there is a level is there that I should for example only photo-read easy books first?

Guessing I'll just state that it is best to just PhotoRead all books, as many different ones as you can. It sets the stage for instant activation. For the first 12 books activating, might be better to work with easier books to get comfortable with the techniques.

I just meant with the easier books if I should only photo read basic or easy-level books that I can literally understand like when we learn to read from an early age to my age now?
Then learn to photo read harder more difficult books?

When I preview the books I have done it more than once is that okay because I don't know what to look for so did it a few times?

Does the affirming the purpose for the book part need to make sense in actual English like when we say what our purpose is during the PhotoReading of the book? my English isn't great and that's why I am doing the PhotoReading but at the same time my English isn't perfect.

OK to preview twice, just keep it short. From the PhotoReading book:

When done effectively, previewing is short and
sweet—about 60 to 90 seconds for a book, 60 seconds
for a long report, and as little as 30 seconds for a short
article. During that time, you look over the material to
get a general idea of what will be covered in the book
or document, clarify and refine your purpose, and
decide whether to continue reading or call it quits.

No to purpose making sense in English. You can state it in another language.

PhotoRead only all books regardless of their difficulty. For your first 12 books PhotoReading and activating, choose "easier" reading books (@200-400 pages, mostly just paragraphs).

This is my last response for the week.

PS - I already answered your 2nd question in the last post.

Hi.

With the blip page, I see an overlapping and doubling of the words and the pages. Is that meant to be what I am meant to achieve with the imaginary x in the middle?

Suppose I can't get the blip page in a relaxed state or very well. Do I need to keep practising it before I photo-read any book or anything?

:I: to see the blip page.

PhotoRead all books even if not seeing the blip page. No practicing first.

The seminar and the self-study are designed for ages 13+. Younger children can easily learn from their parents. Paul Scheele taught one of his sons PhotoReading at age 9.
