Here’s an example of some of the code I picked up, and if you’d like to use it, check out this page. It’s called the “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness” code. It’s based on a great book by George Lucas. You can click on it here.
If you have a computer that supports the web-based form of editing text, you can create text codes from code (that you can copy-paste) on the web. These are the most common types of text codes people use. You can pick up a few of these codes in a few minutes on your computer.
The most common type of code is a “backslash.” This is just a single line of text, and the backslash at the end is just a separator.
It’s not just the backslashes that make text codes so popular. Some of them are also a part of what makes it easier to read text. They make it easier to quickly see where the text starts and ends. For example, when I type “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”, the backslash separates the sentence to read it as “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”.
Most importantly though, backslashes make text codes easier to type and spell. They also make it easier to read.
As a kid I remember typing all of these backslashes with a ruler or pencil, using the backslashes to separate words, and then finding them all at the end. I could also remember having to type a lot of these backslashes (as well as a few more in the future) on my way to school.
This is something I always used to do until I discovered the new keyboard. Text codes don’t have to be so complicated. A text code is the text that you type on your phone to communicate with another person. For example, I typed an email to my sister with the text: “Don’t forget to take the cat to the vet today.” I then wrote a second, shorter email that said something like “Your sister said she’d look at her cat today”.
As I said before, text codes are pretty basic and don’t require much thought. But that same thought might also lead you to a few more obscure ones. For example, I typed an email to my sister with the text This is a test.
So I typed the text Dont forget to take the cat to the vet today and then wrote a second, shorter email that said something like Your sister said shed look at her cat today. Then I thought of something that no one will ever see as a “text code.” Here I just wrote the text Dont forget to take the cat to the vet today. This is a test.
That’s right. These are the exact same letters we got from that same email address a few months back. The difference is that the message here is shorter and uses a different set of text codes. It’s probably because I was trying to say something in the email and it just didn’t fit, or maybe my sister actually had a cat that needed to go to the vet. Either way, this is an example of what the email’s text code could look like.
