The New General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars (NGC) is an astronomical catalogue of deep-sky objects compiled by John Louis Emil Dreyer in 1888. The NGC contains 7,840 objects, including galaxies, star clusters, emission nebulae and absorption nebulae. Essentially the NGC is a collection of all the things that we have yet to explore.
That is where the idea of NGC comes from. The freedom to explore any and all aspects of culture and creativity.
