Maybe I’ll type this out and put the ids between the lines later.
An idea to add: I say ids are art, and I mean it in this sense: you come up with a solution, something YOU LIKE and that works for you (which you know because it “clicks”) and you can’t really say why. (art and unknowingness). It is your subconscious– your innermost striving self– speaking, and it is telling the truth.
Another re creativity: I believe that what I am doing is probably the most creative endeavor on the planet. Not, of course, because I have a specially active or able mind, but because of the FIELD that I have set up. The project as I approach it requires, demands, and engenders prodigious creativity.
Ids are visual concepts. Juxtaposed, the elements combine, forning fields, and shine with unique semantic light,–vibrational, spiritual, musical.
As for my last point, that concepts have internal and external aspects, see my post “The Ideographic Familification of Concepts”. It is important to me, tho an elusive and difficult goal, to put ids into families such that similar related ideas have ideograms that are similar or have elements in common.
Author Christophe Weigert has a chapter on my ideograms in his forthcoming book, The Power of Imagination. Below is a transcription. I took the liberty of editing a bit. One thing I would add is that automating the generation and use of these ideograms into my psche has constituted a profound change.
