Time to decode

“What do these symbols mean?”

“There are three basic principles of communicating information that I know –letters and words exert a pull on the other, choices are gradually narrowed down to end speculation, and the final elimination of other alternatives.”

“What is your final message?”

“Words have become redundant. It is possible to communicate through symbols. Language is dead.”

“What are you trying to say? We work in a research lab, and write several papers and reports.”

“Unfortunately, not in the same era.”

“Elaborate.”

“There are some numbers on the last page to denote a date. It says 3050.”

  2. How interesting! By serendipity this past weekend, I met a man who writes for the deaf community using illustrations because words have no meaning. Sign language is about concepts and based in visual cues. I think what matters is communication. Great flash!
