    if you show someone a picture like that, they will assume they are looking at a square, only because it closely resembles one, but technically is not a square. you can do the same thing with circles, triangles, anything really. i forget what the term was called though. been too long.

    The reading is a bit slower, but if you get used to reading letters in a certain order to mean something, it takes a little pause to get what they mean out of order. But reading stuff like that all the time, I would get used to it. And wouldn't have to backspace so much.

    Looking for patterns when none is obvious is second nature to the brain which is why most people can read my posts

    It's also how the brain see's a pic in ascii art as well as other abstract forms like pixels from your monitor. It is just a bunch of dots right?
