You will need: 1 mind, 1 body, to exist.
Open a packet of experiences and pour it into a mixing bowl. Whisk for a few minutes.
(For the best results, check on the back of the packet that your experiences are nice and varied. This will lead to a better quality idea. )
Once the mixture is confusing, ineffable, beautiful and frightening – then it’s ready. Dip your mind in, and leave to soak for a while.
Take your mind, place it in a baking tray and put it in the oven. Set the timer to ‘what ever time you can spare’, and turn the knob to gas mark, ‘concentrated thought’.
The mind will begin to marinade in the experience, and a tasty idea will begin to form. Don’t panic if your idea has bits missing at this stage. This is normal.
Check on your idea. How’s it looking? If its progress seems to have slowed considerably, you may want to consider turning your oven to ‘subconscious thought’. Subconscious thought can be very powerful, and may help your idea form.
Go do something else, read a book or go for a walk. Subconscious thought doesn’t work if you watch it. You need to leave the kitchen for a bit!
When your idea has solidified, it’s ready for the testing stage. Put on oven gloves and take it out. Leave it to cool a bit. When ready, cut off a slice and take a bite. How is it? Does it taste effective, elegant and logistically possible? Muse on the texture and taste. You will notice some thoughts fall out your ears – sprinkle your idea with these thoughts, and put it back in the oven for a bit.
Once your idea has soaked up the thoughts from the testing stage, take it back out the oven, cut off a few pieces, and show them to family, friends, and if possible strangers (although they tend to be less willing).
Upon seeing your idea you should notice words come out their mouths. Collect up those words and put them in bowl. Sieve out the ones that are unconstructive. Then massage them into your idea and place it back in the oven.
Eventually your idea should become fully formed, with brown, crispy edges – that means it’s ready (if this does not happen, you may need to reapply any number of steps 1-5). Take it out the oven, let it cool slightly, and then eat it. Serve with a hard work and a positive attitude.
