Additive Adventures in Design & Fabrication

                                     from the desk of Adam B. Levine


I've always had ideas, but lacked the resources to act decisively on them.


We're approaching a future where suddenly resources matter alot less in the scheme of things, because ideas (good or bad) can be produced for little more than the cost of material.

 This blog is a record of my successes, failures, and thoughts about both along the way. 



I am always looking for collaborators and projects - If you want to partner with me or hire me, or just talk about a topic of mutual interest, please use the form on the contact me page.

These Douglas Adams quotes mirror some of my views, while allowing me to offload the work of saying it..


"Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."


"All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others."


"Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things."


"Solutions nearly always come from the direction you least expect, which means there’s no point trying to look in that direction because it won’t be coming from there."


" A learning experience is one of those things that say, “You know that thing you just did? Don’t do that.”


"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."


"One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldn’t be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending to be outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he actually didn’t understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid."


"It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression “As pretty as an airport.” Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort. This ugliness arises because airports are full of people who are tired, cross, and have just discovered that their luggage has landed in Murmansk (Murmansk airport is the only exception of this otherwise infallible rule), and architects have on the whole tried to reflect this in their designs."


"It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too."


"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."


"If somebody thinks they're a hedgehog, presumably you just give 'em a mirror and a few pictures of hedgehogs and tell them to sort it out for themselves."
