Why does he spell it that way? I spell it: ((Cr((e(a.)t)(i'v)(e) (I'd)e(a)s because there is a tale to tell. It is a long bit of a story but as I have told it often I have learned to keep it brief. Years ago when I began writing, I became intrigued with the idea of combining mathematical symbols with writing to effect the meaning of words in sentences. At that time I just put symbols in without any clear consistent meanings attached to them. Decades passed. Then somewhere, a few years ago now, as I was writing a poem, I chose a word and realized, as I did so, that its homonym would also work in the exact same place simultaneously. They both worked, not only in the line but in the poem as a whole. In a moment of inspiration I found a way to include both words. Simply using parentheses, and writing: (one) allowed me to indicate that I meant both the word "one" and the word "won". Suffice to say that, as time went on, I began to see situations where mathematical symbols could expand the meaning of what I wrote by bringing out meaning from letters, abbreviations, syllables, and other pieces of words within words which were illuminated symbolically. Now, items within words, could contribute to the meaning of a phrase, line, or poem. As time went on several mathematical symbols were added to this vocabulary with forms indicating word roots and derivations, creating, in the process, a new kind of written expression.
