The intention of the telephone font as a vector quantum Isospin, perceived through the modern telecomputable optics channel of a screenbased hearing. A reaction against (often idle) text-based correlation to and fro the same device. With the smartphones text-based prospect, Isospin aims to co-operate alongside acoustic signalling and transcend the general phenomena of letterform retention through an equivalent formula.

Morse-code operations rely on sustained attention to pulse sequencing through continuous wave transmission. Pagers became popular during the 1980s, their network coverage is wider than cellular networks because they coincide with satelite communications, however these devices are slowly being phased out by network providers.
2.  Henceforth, SMS text-messaging has out-taken mutual converse, and often falls victim to triggering demands on whim, much like the command intention of the pager.
An inversion has occurred in human telecommunicative activity, our sense of ‘occasion’ has been sensored, observation obstructed, clamour now supersedes glamour, despite the devices ability to interact via spoken dialogue.
3.  Isospin dials to function as the upbeat pulse of parallel converse through human association, across a clear, circulative matrix. Text, under distributed duplex cognitive processing.

4.One may suggest a typeface for transcribing voice,
however the purpose of Isospin remains in limbo, and inclines awareness with regards to vocal discourse, in its raw essence, towards a text-based equivalent, emitted yet contray to, acting as a ‘substitute’ for.
5.  Visual recognition and memory play subject to the development of Isospin. What signifies Isospin is the axis mapping of its isomorphic fifth root of unity.
6.  As technological text-based communications advance by modern digital connection speeds, intricacy in vector shape clarity coincides. Isospin sets its structure on formal units under a similar calibration to Monylop, including all bézier-curves. Side-bearing logic and kerning specifications also remain verified to the rule. Counterpart Isospin Italic outline coordinates comply to the Monylop praxis.
7.  When considering vector glyphic forms based on optical inversive geometry, our dipiction becomes silhouetted, which in turn, presses into memory cells due to the infinite looping of calculations multiplied by repetition. Shape blocks out light and therefore casts an impression.

8.The classic spiral telephone wire reminds us of expansive hearing, thus expansive reading [7].
9.  Bakelite plastic, designed by the Belgium Leo Baekelite, became a revolutionary success in 1907, becoming the first plastic to be manufactured from synthetic components.
10.  Early Ericsson telephones were made from the material due to its durablity, lightness in weight, insulation and heat-resistant qualities. Meanwhile, they were only available in black. Carbon black Bakelite, or polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride, has an unusual tonal pigment density, which Isospin arrives to emulate by incorporating a double-black twin-transcription font processing gestalt.

11.The handheld eBook reader Kindle uses a Liquid Cellular Display, whereas smartphones, laptops and desktop-computers are usually built with Light-Emitting Diodes. LCD displays tend to appear sharper. This is where differences in font rendering collide. Isospin aims to distinguish a leap in LED ‘kindling’.
12.  Isospin swivels on a shapely buoyance and refines certain features by reduction in stroke width, with an average axis difference of 20% in stroke orientation. Volted extremities often transverse on a third axis, a bridge to connecting/continuous strokes, brutally enhanced contrast to support rapid eye momentum.
13.  Distinct features of Isospin are — ink/light-traps; slightly condensed rounds; characteristics of Monylop; resonant contrast; formal assembly. Diacritics and punctuation indicate a distinct flavour of clarity – commas and periods are square, cedillas swash, accents airy in pronouncement. And yet with the exception of some accents, all stroke terminals reject diagonal inclinations.

 

 

 ‘Connectionism, noun [mass noun], an artificial intelligence approach to cognition in which multiple connections between nodes (equivalent to brain cells) form a massive interactive network in which many processes take place simultaneously and certain processes, operating in parallel, are grouped together in hierarchies that bring about results such as thought or action. Also called parallel distributed processing’. (Oxford Dictionary of English, 2020).
