My friend's dad is a mathematician, and he tried to teach us how to do it by telling the algorithm in which the next step depends on way you see in colour 1,2,3,4,5,6 at the moment - quite a terrifying experience - I didn't manage to understand anything at all, any my friend can do most of it, but he had a MUCH longer go on her :)

Once many moons ago in the first flush of the cube I was given a way to solve it. I translated this into a number of abbreviated codes so I could put in in my pocked diary and play with the intention of learning it off by heart during my next Foreign trip.

In the Hotel I went down to the bar the first evening, Standing at the bar I took out my cube and diary, laying the diary on the news paper I had been reading which was laying on the bar.#

I proceeded to start to solve the cube looking every once in a while at the diary to see what the next step was. A guy at the other side of the round bar came over after a while proclaiming

" Hey this guy (me) is really good - not only can he solve the Rubik cube he can do it whilst reading the news paper."

No idea about the fastest way other than practice but this shows HOW to solve it - But then if you know the (an) answer what's the point of the puzzle.

There really is only one solution, but the method can be very structured and linear, or a few shortcuts that perform 2+ moves at the same time to solve multiple problems at the same time.

I didn't have the heart to dissolution him.
