What is the nature of our ideas?

I’ve been thinking about the creation of ideas and during this time of thinking i have realized that to generate the creation of more ideas i must first try to understand what an idea is?  or What type of ideas are there? Here i will try to classify types ideas and define them.

Our ideas are objects / occurrences  that we think would be good to exist in this world. There are three main types of ideas, ideas that relate to our physical space, ideas that relate to our virtual space and ideas that relate to time.

Physical Ideas

An idea could be based on a physical object in physical space. This type of idea is one that we are most familiar with. These types of physical ideas are ideas about changing and altering our physical space and objects around us. There are three types of physical ideas:

1. An idea about a physical object that performs a specific task,

2. an idea about a physical object that helps you perform a task,

Or

3. an idea about a physical object that guides you to do a specific task


Virtual Ideas

Ideas could also be virtual (existing in virtual or physical space. ) Virtual ideas exist between space and time because as much potential as they have to become physical objects that exist in space. Virtual objects are a process of code reading and execution. just like with physical objects there are the same three types of virtual objects.

1. An idea about a virtual process that performs a specific task,

2. an idea about a virtual process that helps you perform a task,

Or

3. an idea about a virtual process that guides you to do a specific task

Time-based Ideas

Another type of idea is one that relates to time, these are ideas that are actions / reactions. They are essentially processes that we know as rituals or habits. Rituals such as Christmas, prayer or brushing your teeth all started out as ideas.

An idea such as having a picnic or a water gun fight is a process that can happen when it is deployed.These types of ideas can also happen in reaction to an occurrence, season or timekeeping. These types of ideas can be in the shape of an event that can be deployed or a reaction to a specific occurrence. Examples of ideas that are reactions could be a birthday party, which is a reaction to a specific date of the year and how many cycles it has been since your birth. Even holiday celebrations are reactions to cycles of the year.  These reaction processes began as ideas and can react to occurrences  such as death, life, birth or just good weather. Ideas that exist in time is our way of crafting future Imaginary stories of our lives and people around us.
