The technology exists to solve the cube in any way possible.

I.E., tools exists to do the most primitive of operations to

individual cubies (rotating corners, flipping edges, moving three

corners around, and moveing trhee edges around). Using these, any

method of solving is possible (even solving a corner, then the

edges around that corner, then the corners around those edges,

etc, all the way toward the other corner). Since everybody tends

to develop their own technology, they develop their own favorite

way of solving.

Personally, at present, I solve

the top edges

three of the top corners

three of the middle edges

the last top edge

Up until here the algorithms are quite simple and now I only have

the bottom and one middle edge, which I solve in whatever way

looks most promising. Using this sequence, I am consistently on

the order of three minutes (tending toward 2.5 as I get more

familiar with the method)

Intuitively, I believe that God's algorithm is less than 35 or

so, and I would not be surprised if it is less than 30. Under 25

would really surprise me.
