Chapter 30 – Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right

After the white box fell on the floor, the space-time wormhole gradually disappeared, and the space within the room reverted to its original state.

“It’s here!”

Chen Yu rubbed his hands together in excitement as he stepped forward to open the box. He then extended his hands into the special packing foam and retrieved an extremely heavy pair of glasses.

“It’s actually a pair of glasses?”

After curiously scrutinizing the glasses, Chen Yu set them aside and fished an instruction manual out of the box.

[Quantum Reading Glasses]

These were the words written on the instruction manual’s front page.

“This is…”

Scratching his head, Chen Yu briefly read through the instruction manual and gained a rough understanding of the Quantum Reading Glasses’s ability.

It was a learning assistance device created in the year 2144. So long as the user wore this pair of glasses, they could read much more information within a short time.

The glasses’ principle of operation was extremely complex, so the instruction manual did not go into detail on it. The inventor of the glasses merely placed a small comment at the end of the manual—Just believe that it works!

After tossing away the useless instruction manual, Chen Yu grabbed the glasses once more. However, just as he was about to test the glasses, the phone in his pocket suddenly started vibrating, signaling that he had just received a message.

He pulled out his phone and found that the saleswoman from Transdimensional Marketing had sent him a message on WeChat.

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Mr. Chen, did you receive the delivery?”]

[Chen Yu: “I received it. It’s called the Quantum Reading Glasses, right?”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Yes, Mr. Chen. The Quantum Reading Glasses is the product we applied for you.”]

[Chen Yu: “Why do I feel like this thing is a scam? Quantum Reading Glasses? Are you sure you didn’t just add the word ‘Quantum’ to a pair of ordinary glasses?”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Mr. Chen, please rest assured. Quantum Reading Glasses are one of the most popular learning assistance products used in the 22nd century. It is an excellent technological product that has undergone market and user trials. It also matches the conditions you provided.”]

[Chen Yu: “Alright, I’ll give it a try, then. Talk to you later.”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Very well, Mr. Chen.”]

After closing WeChat and putting away his phone, Chen Yu studied the pair of glasses in his hands for several more minutes before putting them on.


After wearing the glasses, Chen Yu stood up in amazement as he looked at his surroundings.

The instant he wore the Quantum Reading Glasses and looked through the heavy lenses, he discovered that the world around him seemed to…remain the same.

“It seems like…a normal pair of glasses?”

After walking to his study table, Chen Yu took out a Chinese language textbook and tried reading the first page.



However, nothing special happened.

“Maybe I need to power it up?”

Chen Yu took off the glasses and eyed it once more. This time, he noticed a small button hidden above the right side of the frame.


When he pressed the button, the glass lenses suddenly lit up with a green light, which gave the glasses a very techie look.

“Let’s try wearing them again…”

When Chen Yu put the heavy glasses back on, he found his vision dyed with a layer of light green. He then picked up his language textbook once more and started reading the first page. And as he did so, three lines of text suddenly appeared on the left lens.

[Information source detected. Do you wish to enter reading mode?”

[If yes, blink your left eye.]

[If no, blink your right eye.]

“Interesting!” Chen Yu exclaimed, his eyes glowing with interest. “What happens if I blink both eyes together?”

Enacting his thoughts, he promptly shut both his eyes.

When Chen Yu opened his eyes again, he discovered that nothing had changed; all three lines of text remained on the left lens.

[Information source detected. Do you wish to enter reading mode?]

[If yes, blink your left eye.]

[If no, blink your right eye.]

This time, Chen Yu obediently blinked his left eye.

In the next moment, Chen Yu felt as if a jolt of electricity had pierced his brain. At the same time, except for the language textbook and his own hands, everything within his field of vision became blurry. It was as if the world around him had just been censored with mosaics.

[You have entered reading mode. Please select a reading standard.]

[Basic – Move your eyes upward.]

[Intermediate – Move your eyes downward.]

[Advanced – Move your eyes upward and downward.]

[Limit – Move your eyes up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right.]

Chen Yu: “…”

After remaining silent for a brief moment, Chen Yu rolled his eyes.

[You have chosen the basic reading standard.]

Along with the brief appearance of this line of text, Chen Yu immediately felt an intense change.

Time had slowed down.

It was moving at least twice as slow as normal!

When Chen Yu tried stretching out his hand, his hand moved at half the speed it usually did.

“So~ that~ is~ the~ case… Speed~ read~ing~ is~ a~chieved~ by~ slow~ing~ the~ brain’s~ per~cep~tion~ of~ time.”

Now, even the speed of his speech felt slower than usual.

Afterward, Chen Yu slowly raised his hands and removed the quantum glasses. As soon as he did so, his perception of time reverted to normal.

“The flow of time in the world around me remains unchanged. So, these glasses raise my brain’s efficiency?” As he carefully appraised the glasses in his hands, Chen Yu could not help exclaiming joyfully, “What a good product!”

Following which, he wore the glasses again and was met with a few lines of text.

[Glasses have been removed. Reading mode turning off.]

[Information source detected. Do you wish to enter reading mode?]

[If yes, blink your left eye.]

[If no, blink your right eye.]

Chen Yu blinked his left eye.

[You have entered reading mode. Please select a reading standard.]

[Basic – Move your eyes upward.]

[Intermediate – Move your eyes downward.]

[Advanced – Move your eyes upward and downward.]

[Limit – Move your eyes up, up, down, down, left, right, left…]

Without waiting for the introduction to end, Chen Yu moved his eyes downward.

[You have chosen the intermediate reading standard.]

In the next instant, the flow of time around him became even slower than before.

Time had slowed by at least three times!

“Too~~ awe~~some…”

In the time Chen Yu took to close his slow and dull lips, he had already finished reading the first page of his language textbook. However, when he reached out to turn the page, he discovered that his page-turning speed was simply too slow. Hence, he placed the textbook’s spine on his left hand and bent the top edge of the book with his right hand before gradually loosening his thumb.

Shua… Shua… Shua…

The pages of the book turned one after another.

Three minutes later, Chen Yu finished reading the middle school language textbook.

When he removed the quantum glasses, he felt as if ages had passed by already.

In his consciousness, he had spent over a dozen minutes reading the textbook.

“This thing…is truly amazing!”

After passionately stroking the frame of the glasses, Chen Yu pulled out his phone and sent a WeChat message.

[Chen Yu: “This thing is amazing!”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Have you tried it already?”]

[Chen Yu: “I tried it. It’s very, very wonderful. I like it very much.”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “It’s great that you like it, Mr. Chen.”]

[Chen Yu: “However, I have a question regarding this Quantum Reading Glasses.”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “Please ask.”]

[Chen Yu: “While this thing’s function is wonderful, what about its power consumption? I didn’t find any recharging equipment in the package, either. What happens if it runs out of power?”]

[Transdimensional Marketing: “You don’t need to worry about this. Once the glasses run out of power, all you need to do is replace the nuclear battery.”]

[Chen Yu: “???”]
