Unscramble the Blue Letters

OK. I am known as ctaapin Organic and that's a plhoispaohicl position as well as an aesthetic position. But today what I'd like to talk to you about is that love of form and how form can tucoh people's soul and emotion. Not very long ago, not many tushonads of years ago, we actually lveid in caves, and I don't think we've lost that coding system. We respond so well to form. But I'm interested in creating intelligent form. I'm not interested at all in boblsim or any of that superficial rubbish that you see coming out as design. This artificially induced consumerism — I think it's atrocious.

Original Text

OK. I am known as Captain Organic and that's a philosophical position as well as an aesthetic position. But today what I'd like to talk to you about is that love of form and how form can touch people's soul and emotion. Not very long ago, not many thousands of years ago, we actually lived in caves, and I don't think we've lost that coding system. We respond so well to form. But I'm interested in creating intelligent form. I'm not interested at all in blobism or any of that superficial rubbish that you see coming out as design. This artificially induced consumerism — I think it's atrocious.
