The Case for Visual Ideograms
The initial foray towards a target by Guild members is execution of a VISID protocol. A VISID is a visual ideogram (Pictogram) produced after a visual targeting exercise named BLACKBOARD. Production of the Visual Ideogram will fall into three (3) categories:
Ideally a graphic representation of target imagery is most desirable, but at least half the time a Warcollier effect will manifest. This manifestation will occur in two (2) styles:
The Fixed Code image is a prism effect of partial imagery originating from one side of the brain and it's sympathetic reflection for a complete stereo bandwidth focus as it is interpreted by the primary awareness. To verify the fixed code image usually one can put a card over half of the ideogram and the half that is covered will be a mirror reflection of the exposed half.
The disjoint pictogram will be true Warcollier style containing target aspects out of sync as a complete graphic representation.
During the course of repetitive practice all ideogram styles will manifest in the viewer's work. Immediate acceptance and recording of the imagery is imperative. No viewers in initial training are told about imagery styles. The images are produced, then after 10 or 15 targets the viewers are back-briefed and information about type and style is revealed.
The following are in-class examples of VISID production:
