Ideas are evocative, inspiring, thought-provoking, bamboozling and just crazily applaudable.
I mean, one cannot simply get away without a noble prize equivalent of bowing down to them, for coming up with something as brilliant as the drinkable book. This might sound bizarre, but this concept actually exists and works pretty effectively. While there are a handful of extremely cruel people behind poisoning food as simple and vital as instant ramen noodles, there are people who want to see society progress and not slowly die of hunger because of Maggi being the only thing some people can manage to cook without setting their house on fire. The drinkable book, brought into a relatively popular use just recently, is truly a monumental invention which filters water found anywhere on earth to a potable form. All you’ve got to do is tear a page and pass the water through it, which gets purified through the sieve like filter so intelligently embedded in the paper.
Now isn’t that super convenient?
Jumping back to the idea of ideas, this is something that needs to be said. Ideas are an incredibly myriad thing. I bet you that there are more ideas on this planet (and other genius advanced alien planets) than there are grains of sand on all the beaches put together.
Every human brain comes up with extraordinary ideas of its own, half of which are given a concrete form by executing them. And according to my slightly inadequate math skills, I’m guessing half of an infinity of ideas is again an infinity of ideas!
The question now is that, is there enough space to accommodate all these minds working in their own unique way?
Well, because at this rate, infomercials would extend to daytime television too. After all, people need to know about broomstick skates, and cobweb cleaners, and karaoke machines with 34,566 songs from the 60’s preloaded! They’re all bare necessities.
11th and 12th graders would have 9 or 10 additional volumes of books for subjects like organic chemistry and thermodynamics to the already burdensome 2. The added discovery of elements to the periodic table will lead to printing them in a foldable-map-like manner.
It would become impossible to decide which poems should go in the syllabus of students considering how many captivating poems there exist on the internet, with their writers who ought to be as lauded as Shakespeare himself.
Libraries would become larger than ever. We would have an instant version of every dish that’s ever made. Holograms will alter the retort of ‘get out of that darned screen’ to ‘look places other than that darned screen’.
The only conclusion I can think of after this exhausting idea of ideas is that maybe the order of nature is as it is. Edwin Hubble proved the theory of the Expanding Universe ages ago. Maybe the universe is expanding in every aspect and dimension.
