Visuals for Information
Rune Pettersson 1988

Page 90: According to Lanners (1973) we only see the things that affect us emotionally. Everything else is ignored. When we look at a picture, we first discover the cues we already recognise.

Page 93: Our western society is domination by the written word and [is] extremely quadrangular. It is a society in which bureaucrats occupy quadrangular cells in such a way that creative and intellectually lively people are perceived as disturbing and disruptive features of the prevailing order. New ideas are effectively stifled. This leads to stagnation, industrial crises and breakdown of the social fabric.

    I am just writing to let you know what a notable encounter my cousin’s daughter encountered studying your web page. She picked up a good number of things, with the inclusion of what it’s like to possess a wonderful teaching mindset to make many people without hassle know precisely a variety of impossible subject areas. You really exceeded our own desires. Many thanks for delivering these essential, trustworthy, educational and in addition cool guidance on that topic to Ethel.
