The machine initiates with an idea, its core source of energy. The ancient Greeks defined ennoia as an idea, concept, or thought engaged in the mind. Laced with intent, it can hint at purpose or outline a strategy. No idea germinates on its own: sown in fertile soil, it emerges from the strata of previously conceived thoughts, plans, and actions. Additional components must be engineered for the idea to be effectuated; together, these parts form an apparatus: the Future Machine. The idea is the genesis, the initial spark that ignites the plan into action.
