A new approach to thinking.

art form has been described as creative, artistic,
genius, refreshing, mind-blowing, out-of-the-box,
out-of-this-world; or simply "Wow!".
of it as "thinking and speaking in riddles"
- but minus the negative connotation. For once you
get it, you'd wonder why you didn't get it earlier
or "why didn't I think of that?". And then
you'd want to pass it on to your friends, your colleagues,
your loved ones - or even your so-called enemies because
you want to irritate them by speaking in riddles.
(In this latter case you'd probably leave out the
solution to each of the coded messages).
you'll probably want to spread it; pollinate it; propagate
it because you know you have excellent taste and your
peers would agree with you. This medium of communication
will probably spread like a wild idea virus because
once you "catch it", you'd have no choice
but to pass it on!
contagious. Infectious even. However, once you've
learned the trick behind the "coding of the message",
the joke's on the recipient. The mystery of the message
would then have passed from you - the sender to the
person receiving it. And he the latter will have a
dubious task of deciphering what you are trying to

concept has roots as far as back as 3,000 BC!
what we call a LONG TIME NO SEE artform.

of "Long time no see" - again Word Juxtapoz®
idea of using pictures and other symbols as letters
of the alphabet to depict messages with meanings not
apparent known, first started in ancient Egypt in
the form of hieroglypics. Hieroglypics were also used
by the Hittites, Minoans, Maras and Incas. But for
a LONG TIME now, there seems to be an eroding away
of this remarkable art.

the implication: 3,000 plus 2,000 equals 5,000. That's

Word Juxtapoz®: The catalytic fuel that powers
Juxtaerobix™ (brains not included.)
is a series of high impact, high fun energy
and mentally gyrating workouts for the whole brain.
research shows that the brain acts
as a whole, with all the mental skills supporting
each other. These mental skills may be classified
into ten areas: (left brain skills) numbers, words,
logic, lists, details; and (right brain skills) pictures,
imagination, color, rhythm and space. Based on the
understanding that it is the left brain that processes
and stores information concerning words and numbers,
and the right brain that processes and stores pictures,
the Juxtaerobix involves a whole-brain
approach to the solving of a problem.
Each juxtaerobix consists of a juxtaposition
of words and pictures to depict common expressions
or catchphrases. It involves employing
words and visual imagery to create
meaning not plainly apparent. (See the four visuals
on the right margin for illustration. Collectively
they represent the four basic creativity skills depicted
in Word Juxtapoz style, of course!) The message is
hidden in the medium.
Specially designed and conceptualized, Juxtaerobix
workouts are catalysts to whole-brain creative
thinking. Each Juxtaerobix compels a reader to utilise
his or her whole-brain mental skills of processing
and analysing the pieces of information available
(generally depicted in the forms of words,
letters, numbers, symbols, punctuation marks and pictures)
and collectively make sense of them.
carefully engineered teasers promote
the development of a learner's creativity
by helping him or her exercise four main creativity
2) taking risks;
3) seizing a chance; and
4) approaching a task or problem in ways different
from that before.
Because every Juxtaerobix compels
the user to go through a process of discovery - by
working through his or her mental processes - in order
to figure out the hidden meaning, this means that
the learning is made more effective, fulfillng, enjoyable,
and will last longer. This is opposed to the all too
common way of learning by rote.
