Glide Oracle for iPad Released!
$.99 in Apple App Store.
The Glide Oracle is an oracle whose roots are in the tradition of the I Ching, and whose symbols announced themselves as an alien language called Glide, transmitted in an altered state of consciousness. Glide symbols dynamically transform under the touch of the user, and deliver a translation. These 729 translations of Glide hexagrams were completed by Dr. Diana Slattery of the Dept. of Xenolinguistics at the Institute for the Encouragement of Outrageous Ideas.
The 27 Glide glyphs morphing.
Slattery speculates that language and consciousness are co-evolving in the human species, catalyzed in the culture by psychedelic experience, an idea addressed by psychedelic philosopher Terence McKenna. She sees the morphing Glide glyphs as a model of a new way of making meaning that can potentially rewire the brain with a bias toward perception of transforming rather than static statics, increasing the fluidity and flexibility of thought forms. The Glide Oracle was programmed by Mark Buchanan of Optical Alchemy.
