mind plasma! definition
Why is it so easy to figure out other people, but so difficult to figure out yourself? I thought I could easily to come up with a definition of "mind plasma!" but it appears it will be a life-long process. To set up a framework to contain it, to give it closure, I started the grocery list below. Remember, this is a work in progress, a rip-cord of my creative process in case of unexpected expiration date expiration.

mind plas•ma! noun 2000 ??? 2001. first used and created for XM Satellite radio show called mind plamsa! See #20 below. Coined like a term Rod Serling coined in The Twilight Zone.

1. The transformation of utter ridiculousness into a shocking realization of cosmic truth.

Usually presented in a iterative manner where a comical issue escalates into a matter of absolute seriousness while still retaining a comical presentation. "He obsessed over weirdness like a cow chewing it's cud, each idea growing stranger and stranger until, like tumblers of a safe falling into place, planets alined, and the uttely ridiculous transformed itself into a shocking realization of cosmic truth, sugar-coating his consciousness with a strip-mall happy meal aura of enlightenment."

2. Finding strangeness in ordinary things that trips you out, makes think, and loves you. Nature has been creating weirdness for millions of years. How can you compete with it? Example: Nature, Animal weirdness, ticks. Look in book. Dolphin story?

3. Cosmic truth emerging from an unexpected place or situation not worthy of the truth itself. Example: In the movie, Saturday Night Fever John Travolta argues with his boss in the back of a hardware store. Tony wants his boss to pay him on Friday rather than Monday so he has spending money for the weekend, but his boss refuses because he wants his employees to have spending money for the future week. Tony says, "Fuck the future!" and his boss replies, “No Tony, you can’t fuck the future, the future fucks you!”

4. A technical diagram, flow chart, or equation composed of absurd elements relating a cosmic truth.


6. A series of large, multi-sylable words describing a complex process, or seemingly complex process in a poetic manner. "The rover had high-resolution stereo-vision to survey the Mars landscape." -- NASA Mars rover mission

7. An everyday truth which, by chance circumstance, becomes applicable to a larger universal realm.
A strip-mall cosmic truth that extends to the cosmos. Looking to hit that peaktime strip-mall cosmic truth. Getting big answers from small questions.

8. To feed your eyes, ears, and mind on the odd, awkward, and ugly, rather than the beautiful. When the eyeball forgoes beauty and is attracted to uglyness like a magnet.

Example: Tell story from mind plasma! movie. I'm looking at the mole, I'm looking

This definition also extends to other the senses of touch, taste, and smell as well.

9. A relaxed state of consciousness where fact, humor, and imagination coexist in an absurd triple point of expression. Like impulse power on the Starship Enterprise, mind plasma! is a natural state of imagination where icons are perceived easily without effort. Being high. A funny mood. "He floated in a mind plasma of ideas; a primordial soup of fact, humor, and fantasy."

10. A piece of information or idea that pushes past passive truth and motivates one to think or create.

Thought provoking power emulating from a piece of information or idea, not the original idea itself or the new ideas that spring from it. The power that creates thought and innovation.

14. Depeche Mode vs. Jimi Hendrix
Live version of Blaphfious Rumers. 5 instruments sequenced. The only thing new is Dave Gahan going "OH!" at the end of each chorus. The only thing not sequenced is solo that sounds like a cheesy oboe. When dude plays it, tens off thousands of people go, "OH!" Which in a way is even more amazing than Jimi Hendrix playing at Woodstock, because he deserves the accolades, and Depeche Mode does not.

19. Concept Decoration

I am more of a concept guy, "Alien Soap Opera Transmissions From Outer Space," that's "mind plasma!" Then I take that concept and decorate it with colored pencils, costumes, and sound effects. I write a story around it and turn it into a complete performance with crazy hand gestures and body movements.

No need to get stressed over the creation process. Just think of something crazy that expresses daily life. Get excited, have fun, and get in touch with the pleasure-centers of your imagination.

31. e. e. cummings spelling of mind plasma! verbal verve

"mind plasma!" is spelled in lower case with an "!" exclamation mark at the end. Why? Because from humble, lower-case nouns spring exciting exclamation marks of reverbing verbal verve!


"A cosmic truth that emulates from the drive thru pickup counter at McDonalds, the back of the hardware store, an interview with Milli Vanneli, or defective Ford Motor Company transmission. Not necessary from a place you'd expect it, or is worthy of the truth itself."

"They'll have high-resolution stereo-vision to survey the landscape." (from the NASA mars rover mission):

mind plasma! is an expansion process of truth, from strip mall to cosmic. It is the quirky emergence of strip mall truth, and the strange transformation of that truth to something absolute, universal, and cosmic.
