[prMac.com] Round Hill, Virginia - A new iPhone app "Text Transmuter" turns a text message into an animated stream. It does it by changing the characters' shapes and morphing them as they are being displayed, one after another. The texts, static and unmovable, suddenly become time-dimensional objects. Get the app and see for yourself!
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" opens Gospel of John The Apostle. What is that Word exactly was, is anyone's guess. The one thing is for sure - it was not written in any books... The Word of the English translation of the Bible, was originally the Logos of the Greeks. Was the Logos, the language of the Gods? The way to encapsulate the information, like DNA does? Where the medium is the message? Is it possible to lift the humans' words off the paper, that they are written on, in the language that we understand, and turn them into Logos of the Gods?
I believe that there is one method that comes close to achieving the above task. And this method is so simple, so self-evident, that I can't explain why I have to be the one to tell you about it... I called it the "transmutation technology".
So, right down any message, that you want to turn into Logos, in a corner of a thick book, one letter on every page. Start backwoods, so that the beginning letter is on the last page and the latter letters are stacked over the former ones. When you quickly flip the pages backwards, the letters will stream at you one after another. Well, it worked for funny cartoons that I drew when I was a kid, but it falls short of producing a desired effect with letter characters. This is where the computers could help!
A new iPhone app called "Text Transmuter" enables the above process quickly and easily. You enter the message or select the one you like from the library and the app will display it. It will stream character after character, while using transmutation to connect the letters' shapes in your brain. Transmutation is the morphing of the letters' shapes.
It is the words that are the units of information. In order to read the printed text, one should be able to see a few words at a time, where words are separated from each other by spaces. Or, as is in case of the handwriting, the characters are connected with their own shapes... Flashing letters will not form into words, when there is no connection established between the adjacent letters inside the words! There is no way to see the words' boundaries when you can only see a single character at a time. But, the magic of animation that brings cartoon characters to life, does the trick...
Alas, it is not easy to understand the message in transmute, when the letters fly at a speed of a conversational speech. This is a skill that needs to be developed first. On the other hand, the Gods were using that technique for millennia, they will get your Logos even at the speed of light.
