Imagination is the facility to form new ideas in the brain. It is the means to use resourcefulness to solve unusual and difficult problems. “Albert Einstein,” said, “Imagination” is more important than knowledge.
Even as we get older daydreams and our imagination doesn’t stop. Many a time we often conjure up an idea or invention that originated in thought through our imagination. When we look back in history at some of the marvels of their age the imagination of inventors put forth ideas that turned into experiments which then produced results. Thomas Edison and Tesla achieved worldwide acclaim when their marvels of that period enlightened the world. But, those inventions would not have been made possible if it wasn’t first formulated in the imagination of their conscious thoughts. And, you can bet your bottom dollar that all other great inventors’ throughout history the success they achieved first originated in their own imagination. In all the great works of art, music, and literature all were conceived through their own imagination.
Today the technological marvels that are now available have also been a contributing factor in retarding childhood imagination and may well be attributed to more evil intentions of those willful perpetrators of calamity.
