Continued from page 1
One of main issues is number of turns. Each turn takes time, albeit a very short time because these guys do there turns at a rate faster than 4 turns per second.
Imagine this (sounds like something from The Matrix), you get given a mixed up cube, you look at cube for 30 seconds, you then pick correct set of turns from your memorized list of over 40 sets and use that to complete cube. Being blindfolded makes no difference because you are “one with cube”. Reality is being altered.
Ok, come back to reality for a while and say to yourself, what do I want to achieve. Do you want to be able to complete cube in 3 minutes, or in 30 seconds.
To be able to solve cube in 3 minutes will probably take you about 4 hours to learn moves from a book or a web site, it will then take you a further 4 hours to complete cube a number of times, before you can remember it and do it without looking at book or website.
That is if you use a good book or a good web site, don’t waste your time trying to follow solution that comes with cube that you bought, that is maybe for Einstein, although I am sure even he would find it a challenge!
If someone can sit with you and show you moves, then it will take you about 1 hour to complete cube 1st time, and then about 4 hours to get all moves into your head.
However, to be able to solve cube in 30 seconds will probably require in excess of 1000 hours of practice, and you will have to remain “fit” by practicing for at least 4 hours a day, to keep your speed up.
So short way is actually long way and long way is actually short way. Decide for yourself!
