"Preheated" is the term I use to describe an idea that has been mentioned in print before, usually a science fiction reference. Not quite the same thing as "baked".

I asked too many questions....now I have a fun job in the manufacturing world. Quality Anthropology: Problem prevention, problem solving, figuring out who's problem it really is....

"One thing I've found out, over the years, is that, anytime you think that you were the originator of some new idea, ' I was the first to do that, ' you'll find some old fellow who did it around 1895. Every darn time. " Edward Hamilton, 1904 - 1977, in "The Space Opera Renaissance", TOR Books, 2006

And I'm an insensitive clod:
