- App Store Info
Description108 Simple Koans is an art collection of computer graphics, each expressing an abstract statement (koan) in picture and word. App is designed as a modern oracle.
Sometimes you find yourself asking a question and the answer doesn't seems to be very clear. 108 Simple Koans can help you clarify, answer or show you the right direction.
To get an answer from Oracle just tap ASK ORACLE button (the front side of the app). After you tap, app flips back and a koan is displayed. This is your answer in picture and in one statement. Koans are irrational statements, to understand them fully, to get a full answer, you need to listen to your intuition rather than to a rational mind. To flip the app back to front, just tap on the image of displayed koan. You can have fun using oracle also for your friends and family.
"The West, with the newest technology and knowledge, ennobles the East. It is a pleasure to hear the clap of one hand in the silence. And to ﬂare up in silence.
Zen is the way, the path and the freedom within limitations."

All 108 graphics were made on Apple iBook.
