Extreme Reading Illusion

Ignore the fact that the subject paragraph on the left is badly mangled. Try reading it through anyway.

Amazingly, you will find that it is not all that hard to follow.

Here is what the paragraph actually says without spelling errors:
"THE PHENOMENAL POWER OF THE HUMAN MIND. According to research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole."
