Animation for the anagram "Listen=Silent"

An anagram is a puzzle where the player has to move all the letters in a word to make a new word. An example would be The Morse Code and Here Comes Dots. Anagrams are often used in fiction when a character wants to use a different name. For example, the Harry Potter character named Tom Marvolo Riddle made an anagram based on his name, "I Am Lord Voldemort", and began calling himself "Lord Voldermort". And the pen name of Voltaire comes from "Aroueti". The word 'nag a ram' is actually an anagram of the word anagram. Common anagram examples are "dormitory"-rearrange to dirty room, "listen"-rearrange to silent, "astronomer"-rearrange to moon starer, and "a decimal point"-rearrange to I'm a dot in place.
