Human computer communication through creativity: Endemes provide an excellent way to merge user desired characteristics and randomness (aritificial creativity). An endeme is a permuted list of characteristics that can be combined in any way and in any order. If the computer comes up with some of them and the user comes up with some of them, then they merge well.
Happy medium: Endemes are designed to be simple enough for a computer to understand, and abstract enough for a person to understand and to be useful for a person.
Support Creativity: Endemes support creativity of the user.
Exposing an endeme: An endeme can be exposed to the user even if it is fairly technical because endemes deal with information and users think in terms of information.
