A Method for Generating New Ideas

One way to generate new ideas in both math and physics is to simply take the words used to describe the concepts and arrange them together at random to hopefully form a new concept. For instance if we take the word negative as in "negative number" and combine it with the word dimension, we get negative dimension. As of yet I have not seen any mathematical paper dealing with a concept.

There is no limit to the amount of new concepts we can create using such a method.
