  • Is it Disrespectful to Lecturers, Instructors, Glorian Publishing, etc., to Increase or Decrease the 'Play Speed' of Lectures

Greetings,

Is it disrespectful to Lecturers, Glorian Publishing, Instructors, etc, to increase or decrease or the 'play speed' of lectures?

Occasionally, it is helpful to re-listen to a lecture at a faster speed in order to refresh my memory and pick up things that I did not catch the first time listening, yet my mind can wander off if I have already heard the lecture before. So, it can be useful to increase the rate or 'play speed' at which the lecturer is speaking.

However, this is possibly similar to altering what the lecturer is saying.

In fact, at much faster or slower speeds, it does not even sound like the same person nor content.

Any feedback you can provide regarding this matter would be much appreciated. Be well.


Sincerely,

Adam

If you really want to learn more, then aim to acquire knowledge not with the ears and intellect, but deeper.

Instead of changing the lecture play speed, change how you listen.

In my observation, the students who actually learn gnosis are not those who heard 1000's of lectures 1000s of times, but those who heard one lecture very well.

Meditate while listening to a lecture. Visualize what is being taught, and go deep into meditation.......
