Reducing complexity and presenting information in a different way
The more often you can reduce chunks of text and replace them with a visualisation, the better it is for your brain. By presenting information in a different way and displaying it visually you enable your brain to:
Assimilate information more quickly
Retain content more effectively
Recall content more rapidly
Most of the information you’ll be exposed to in future will also be as text, since it’s still the easiest way of communicating impersonally. But text consists of rows and rows of similar symbols and so is incapable of depicting connections on its own.
