This thesis is proposing a research direction of using computation to help people fully take advantage of spatial cognition in thinking process. As our most important form of information processing spatial cognition provides thinking what logical and verbal means are inferior at. But without external aid, its application is tremendously constrained. Computation could play a role in circumventing those constraints and bridging out the strength of spatial cognition in thinking process. This could augment our of thinking ability and reform our mind.
