WHY IDS?

Ids are art.  They expand one’s linguistic mind into the creatively graphic.  They are personal aesthetic expression.  Artists should prefer drawing their language creatively to writing it with dead phonetic scratches.  As I write in ids I spontaneously create and play and improve.

Ids are philosophy.  In order to represent  an idea graphically, one must confront and struggle with what the idea really means.

Ids are scholarship.   They teach what the roots of words are and the relationships among words.  They clear away the fog of unknowingness about our own language.

Ids are clearer than ordinary language.  They are more specific.

Ids are easy.  As much as possible, I’ve tried to make them self-evidently pictorial. Beyond that I’ve striven to make them logial and efficient.

Ids are self-improvement.  Because they involve more of the mind, they improve the mind.  Pictorial images are stickier than words.

Ids are personal.  Make your own!  We each have our own takes on ideas.  What graphic representations of ideas work for you?
