The human mind is a thought factory producing around 70.000 thoughts per day. I am proposing the idea of mind manufacture to physically harness this boundless energy and the instantaneous nature of a thought to aid and innovate the process of creation. Imagine a device, a facilitator of communication between two dissimilar entities: the human mind and a fabrication system. The Thought Harvester, is a semi-living synthetically grown organism that functions as an external organ to the user’s body. The soft interface is a hybrid made from organic as well as synthetic mass. It plugs into the central nervous system where it harvests human thoughts and imagination. The fabrication unit, a system that allows for a fluid, 3D way of prototyping, receives input from the harvester and creates an ever evolving and responsive physical output based on the users thoughts. Allowing a continuous feedback loop between the mind and the manufacturing system would lead to a more organic and intuitive process of making that uses less resources for protoyping and enhances productivity.The human mind is a thought factory producing around 70.000 thoughts per day.

We are all athletes in the arena of desire,
our playbooks heavy with detailed
maneuvers designed to guide us to glory.
Some are for short rounds with attractive
opponents, the objective a furtive tussle
or frantic caress. Others pursue long play
with an equal on the field, in which aesthetic
assembly is merely the starting siren in a
satisfying match. Regardless of where we
set the goalposts, we remain acutely aware
of what keeps us in the game.
