I’ve been developing the Octaikon graphic over 15 years, & have experimented with many different ways of using it.
MINDMAPS Mindmaps are useful for summarising and remembering ideas. I designed the graphic to form a template on which to map the concepts and theories that I’ve studied, helping to contrast and compare them.
ANIMATIONS Animated and interactive presentations are often effective at getting an idea across. You’ll find several diverse ways of doing this using Flash, HTML 5, animated GIFS. and MP4 videos.
BOOKS I have written several book-length resources including an autobiographical book on the project and different explanations for younger people in mind, Two of these are available in print.
PAPERS Here you will find papers that I have written in an effort to produce some promotional literature and also to explore a wider understanding of the idea as it relates to science, theology and philosophy.
BLOCKS Such an idea can benefit from a physical, tactile approach as well as pictures, diagrams, and the printed word. This is particularly the case for very young learners. I’ve therefore created a version using wooden blocks.
TERRAIKON Based on my professional training in forestry I have developed a model that includes the Octaikon and covers all the other world resources that we benefit from.
AL’s PAGE Al is a cartoon character I have recently created to help me explain the Octaikon ideas. Let me introduce you to Al here!
