About this Blogsphere:

This blogsphere attempts to capture, catalog and share resources relating to visual perception of information.

"Chakra in Hindu means "wheel." In Buddhist, Jainist, and Hindu beliefs, Chakras are vital energy centers in the body. continue reading"

And, now the alpha-numeric, with a slant towards digital inspiration:
Information visualization of Google using the wheel gives extra energy to this virtual domain.

Google Alphabets Wheel: English Alphabets in Google Search Results by Amit Agarwal on 7/29/2006

Inspired heavily by Google Number Wheel that's a brainchild of Philipp Lenssen, here's a different version of Google Wheel for English Alphabets.

It is easy to read the graph. Each pie segment on the circle denotes the number of Google search results for a particular alphabet. For instance, Google Web search returned 24 billion documents containing the alphabet "a" while just 1.7 billion results for alphabet "q".
