Happy palindrome Tuesday.

This curious date is also an ambigram, which means you can read it from left to right, right to left and upside down to still read as today.

When we borrow Arthur Schopenhauer’s idea of linguistic entropy (the likelihood a combination of letters arise together in languge) it is notable because it subverts our expectations.

This is similar to the pleasant surprise (tension) generated in poetic rhyme, polyrhythms or puns.

They all give us a sense of design.

.. unless you are from the US, in which case, happy ordinary Tuesday.
