Turning Signs

by Gary Fuhrman

Turning Signs is a hypertext netbook about the process of meaning. It can be read in many ways, online or off. My advice is to start at the beginning, or even the preverse, a kind of guided meditation that comes before the beginning. But no matter where you start, you will need to read each part of it with close attention and open intention.

To read it offline,

  1. use the link at the end of this paragraph to download the whole book as a Zip file (about 3 MB).
  2. Extract the contents from the Zip file to the location of your choice.
  3. open the TS folder in that location,
  4. then select and open index.html.
When your browser opens that file, you'll be reading the same page you are now, except it will be stored on your computer instead of the gnusystems website. Adjust the window and text size to your liking, just as you do with any webpage. The Table of Contents below, and other links internal to Turning Signs, will work the same as they do online. Here's the download link:

If you really hate reading from a screen, you can email me to order a paperback copy of the first and only print edition (2015) of the Obverse side ($25 +shipping). There are as yet no plans for a print edition of Turning Signs 2.3, but you can read it all here for free.
