Now, there are books like Gilles Deleuze's Thousand Plateaus where he proposes that it should be read in a non-linear fashion. And there are also books like Cloud Atlas where you have several narratives intertwining at once. Finally, there is this footnote that sends you from the beginning of this text to the very end. However, even in those cases, it's hard to get the whole picture because the way we normally read is still linear and too slow to see how it all connects to the big picture. InfraNodus helps you read in a nonlinear way, following Deleuze's rhizome of relations and meanings.

Just looking at the InfraNodus image you can quickly see what the text is about. If you click on any words in the graph, you will quickly get to the excerpt of the text where those terms co-occur next to each other.

InfraNodus is a nonlinear reading tool. It visualizes any text as a network to show you the most relevant terms and their relations to one another.

Usually we read in a chronological way, from left to right, top to bottom. A short text, like this one, is OK, because you remember what it said in the very beginning. However, as the narrative progresses it's harder to grasp the text in its totality because of the short-term memory limitations and the linear nature of traditional reading.
