I was in Delphi, Greece looking at ancient inscriptions on the Oracle of Delphi—they’re impossible to see from far away; each line is only about an inch tall. I noticed that there were no spaces between the words. When I asked why this was I was told that they were prayers, and that it didn’t matter if they could be read easily by people. The gods don’t need spaces.
