Impulse
This ain't your daddy's hoverscooter -- give in to the Impulse!
About this creation
Yes, it's the Impulse, hoverscooter of choice for spoiled rich kids and wealthy eco-freaks everywhere. Never needs fuel, and emissions consist of oxygen and water vapor. The same technology used by the ancients to levitate 70 ton granite blocks into position during construction of the pyramids has been rediscovered and channeled into a healthy quarterly profit for The Skunk Works transportation division. Unfortunately I cannot explain the technology further, it being a trade secret.


The Impulse was created on an impulse, late one night when I should have been asleep.


Ah, insomnia... where would my creative endeavors be without you?


It has been posited that a major function of the brain is to act as a filter limiting the sensory input. If it didn't, we'd be overwhelmed and unable to function -- we'd all be autistic.


So when we alter our consciousness -- whether through drugs, meditation, being in great pain or stress, or through sleep deprivation -- we open up that filter.


As my man William Blake said, "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite."


Think of your head as a radio, tuned to a particular frequency. Ideas are out there floating around, and if they match your frequency, they pop into your head.


So when you weaken, widen, or bypass (choose your favorite term) that filter, you can pick up additional frequencies and get more ideas.


More ideas occur to you, yes. Capturing them and putting them into action is another matter.


Right now the sensitive receiver in my head tells me you're wondering whether it's drugs or insomnia or what making me babble on like this.


You're thinking, "What the hell is this? I come to your site for your trademark brand of glib irreverent humor and semi-talented MOCs, not some half-baked treatise on speculative metaphysics."


Indeed... So smoke some opium, practice self-flagellation, start sleeping two hours a night, and you'll be amazed at the wondrous creativity suddenly percolating in your brain... better?

Okay, so I still love the car, but I am wondering. On the sig-ocean page, it mentioned these. Did you make these first? Somebody else takes credit for the original idea, so, what's going on?

Interesting form and great amount of detail in a small MOC. At first glance, I thought that was the hot, new girl from the Sector 4 Tribunal. Keep up the coolness!

Nice little scooter. Those octagon pieces are so useful! As for the commentary, are you saying that sleep deprivation and certain drugs are good because they can damage the "filters" that allow you not to pay attention to unimportant stimuli? I don't think ideas are "out there" waiting to be captured. It makes more sense to think of them as being the result of many thought processes which disregard useless information and focus on something. That's part of the reason why I think it's bad not to be able to think clearly.

That is really cool. I’d build one of my own but I don’t have the right Lego piece.

Is it creativity, or just the perception of creativity on the part of the writer? Sleep deprivation in of itself could be considered an altered state of consciousness. Maybe this altered consciousness leads you to believe this is more creative/profound than it actually is? Unfortunately, I also being in a state of sleep deprivation, find this creative as well. Which means I cannot confirm or refute the creativity of your comments. Alas, I shall have to head off to the 'Hotel' for the midnight shift trying to treat the ailments of those that frequent a inner-city ER in the middle of the night. This should give me time to ponder this question, but do nothing for my altered LOC. Lee.
