Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Benedicamus Domino!" - Hilaire Belloc

Interactive Maps to Explore...

This is posted ahead of the date above.

I came across the 'Color Portrait of the English Language' a week ago but have only now managed to blog it. It's a cool "interactive map of more than 33,000 words. Each word has been assigned a color based on the average color of images found by a search engine. The words are then grouped by meaning. The resulting patterns form an atlas of our lexicon."

It's a bit difficult to describe, so it has to be seen to be experienced! One can spend hours exploring this map which is found at the 'Color Code' site. Fascinating stuff!

Another cool map I came across is the animated London Tube map... Zone One only though. It's mesmerizing!

Have fun, this Saturday, just exploring these sites... It makes a break from all the theology and church-related stuff normally found at this blog! Enjoy the break!
