A Method For Infinite Novelty

Our intention, with this essay, is clarifying.

Clarifying what?

A new method of finding ideas, developing concepts, exploring thoughts; and so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Right before we begin, there is one thing to note.

The method you are about to learn was inspired by the idea of a “PPO Cube.”

A PPO Cube was a cube-shaped toy that allowed you to apply your expertise to a particular theme.

Our new method was, and still is, greatly inspired by the idea of a PPO Cube.

You Are A Genius

You are a genius.

But, that’s not all.

You are also a creative genius.

If you need ideas, you can make them.

And, if you aren’t sure how to solve a problem, you will find a solution.

You can keep going and flowing, across a neverending wealth of examples.

No matter what, the point still stands.

You are a genius.

Just as you are an infinitely creative being.

The purpose of our method is to activate the endless genius that you are.

A Simple Method

Our method is simple.

You must develop a list.

A list of what?

Your talents. Or, areas of expertise.

Something you are good at or familiar with.

Your list must contain at least ten items. Each one should be numbered.

And, with that in mind, here is my list:

  1. Creating unique, but effective, methods, systems, tools; and so on and so forth.
  2. Manifesting, attracting, and selecting that which one desires.
  3. Developing essays and other, related, content.
  4. Googology, infinity, and big numbers; among other, related, things.
  5. Living in Cambodia, Malaysia, and the United States.
  6. Finding interesting books.
  7. Writing and editing, within any particular context.
  8. Making unique, strange, and fantastical worlds/stories.
  9. Designing simple, but fun, games, experiences, and play spaces.
  10. Coming up with ideas, concepts, notions; and so on and so forth.

My list is pretty short. But, it is sufficient.

Right after you come up with your list, you must think of something.

A question. A problem. A theme. A goal. A thought. A notion. A possibility.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

You must clarify what it is that you are choosing to explore.

Right after you do so, you must select a random item on your list.

You must then apply that particular item to what you have chosen.

A Quick Example

Our method is simple. But, it can be a little confusing, if you aren’t sure what using it looks like.

Just to make sure there is no confusion, here is a quick example.

My question is “How can I find, and enjoy, interesting adventures that excite me, inspire me, and enrich my mind infinitely, endlessly, and beyond any limits; ad infinitum?’

Our question is a little silly. But, it’s a fun one.

If we use our method for this, though, we get “Finding interesting books.”

And, after letting this roll through my mind for a moment, a few ideas came to me:

  • You can find books that explore ideas that really, really inspire you.
  • You can apply some of the different practices and ideas within those books.
  • You can find adventures that relate to the books that most inspire you.

And so on and so forth.

None of those are great.

But, they did lead to an idea that really spoke to me: actively enriching my mind, by using new creativity/ideation methods, to explore questions that explore the transcendence of my habits, limits, and assumptions.

A quick example of this is developing a mind map that explores this question: what can we do to find, enjoy, and share ideas that go beyond our neural pathways, sources of awe, and habitual patterns of inspiration?

Outside of the above, there are infinite other ideas, adventures, quests, possibilities — ad infinitum — that can, and do, arise, from using our method.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.


Just to wrap this up, my hope is that you enjoyed this essay.

Even more than that, my hope is that you use this method and that, in doing so, you obtain what you want.

No matter what, though, thank you so much for reading!
