The life of a Highdea is humbling, yet short lived. So much care and love is placed within the text; we follow closely as they gain the first 40 votes, then watch the number of votes and comments skyrocket with excitement, but then it is lost within the void.

If Carl Sagan(or anyone of importance) were to read just one, and only one; what would you show him? What is your defining Highdea?

One Highdea to rule them all, post it in the comments
I will compile and categorize them, never letting it die

This was the first Highdea I had ever read, and is literally the only reason I come on this site.
Without this Highdea as a guide for my own Highdeas, and the ones i hope too read, I don't think I would be writing this comment.

Sat, 12/10/2011 - 6:51pm - my best highdea - my favorite of yours - my favorite of all time
I wasn't sure what you meant so I just put all three

Wed, 12/14/2011 - 11:51pm

Yeah I definitely baked haha
I'm looking for your personal favorite highdea, and one defining highdea written by yourself

Sat, 01/14/2012 - 2:33pm

I like this one of mine: check it out :)

Tue, 01/10/2012 - 1:53pm - this one just was mind blowing - this one is mine and is just a invention i would like to see happen cause i have good memories on my old phone

and personally i think the funniest highdea of all time is the one where the kid puts his seatbelt on in class, i dont think i have ever laughed as hard as i did when i read that

I like the way you think man. I've been doing something similar and i'm absolutely loving the results. Check out my profile for the one i'd submit.

Upvoted after browsing the comment section. Every one of those that I read deserves more love. Thank you all for sharing.

Fri, 12/23/2011 - 12:24pm

Im not normally one for self promotion but I was reading my older ones and I forgot about this one. I'd share this one, cause the potential for whatever is out there is completely mind boggling.

yeah, that's an awesome way to look at it. Sadly, my Highdeas are not worthy. haha

I think this defines me pretty well:

I don't really have a defining highdea, but I always liked this saying that my friend and I came up with together.

I dunno, I thought it would be nice to share if you can see a message in it.

This is the most clever one I've found

This is my favorite that I wrote

Fri, 01/13/2012 - 2:12pm

When I first read the title of this I thought this was going to be LOTR related, like "One Ring to Rule Them All" hahah ohhhh man, nerd status.

Sat, 01/14/2012 - 4:05pm

That's the reference I was making haha

Sat, 01/14/2012 - 9:18pm

Haha oh okay, well then we were kinda on the same page

AjayHern Says:

I upvoted only because your title brought me back to a memory of my old best friend.
But then realized I also liked the Highdea. Sometimes you need two votes. For special occasions lol

what if we captured acid rain and just dumped it all over people.
tie a rope to the moon and have the biggest rope slide thing ever. but then what if we made it like a tour of the earth like major places and then drops you off at your house while you texted your TiVo what show you wanted recorded.
we should paint the sky like a sunset or with rainbows cuz people always like seeing double rainbows.
surgically add wings so you can fly anywhere we wanted to get food from.
motion sensor lights in your house. this way, you will never haver to turn a light on or off. no more wasting electric, and you will know if there is a murderer in your house about to kill you and your will see lights turn on somewhere else.
go into a house and live under their couch cushions cuz everyone always loses money under their. you could get rich if you chose the right house.

The highdea i would choose:

(if your too lazy to click on it it says:
I hate humanity as a whole, but I can find something to love about every individual)

This is my most upvoted highdea.. I DID NOT WRITE IT. I just posted it. It is amazing and it blows minds. HAD to share it with everyone on highdeas. Haters will hate though. Credit for this highdea goes to Andy Weir.

This is one I had put alot of time into and I go off onto a little bit of rambling but only to further teach towards a better understanding of the main highDEA it got lost in the sea of upcoming aswell and I was saddened to see my hardwork get covered so quickly by what mostly were just dumb shit but I am sure there were other great highDEA's but this site really has lost what it was meant to be and it is now just a social site roughly speaking we need more real highDEA's with thought and meaning in them

Mon, 06/11/2012 - 9:53am

I noticed Philosobong that we have a similar highdeas, yours really finished my thought completely.

Your is The Paradox of our Universe

This was mine. Thank you
