While recently engaged in a championship stare-off with the ViewSonic monitor on my desk, I let my gaze wander off to the wall, the window, and just about any other thing that popped into my peripheral vision.
Since my computer seems to get some satisfaction in winning these staring contests with
me, I usually just let it.
It was during one of these recent moments of mental wandering that I had a sudden impulse to get a lava lamp.
I'm not sure why, but that soothing, groovy, ever-slow dance of the goo seems to relax me. It's been years since I've had one around.
With my mind still wandering around quite nicely, it occured to me that I didn't want just any lava lamp, but a really, really big lava lamp. Thinking on that for a moment, I thought, "What would it be like to be INSIDE of a lava lamp".
All at once the (lava) light bulb came on!
Why not build cubicals and maybe even walls out of a double-walled piece of glass, fill it with water and "lava", provide some sort of heat on the bottom.
Oh, yes, that's the thing... a lava cube.
Let the goo dancing begin.
