There is no progress without imagination – None – Every innovation has come about because someone sat and thought for a time and worked out how something might work, then figured out how to create it.
From making fire and designing the wheel, all they way up to skyscrapers, computers and landing on the moon, imagination has been the thing that made it happen. It’s the most powerful tool we have. Hand-in-hand with manipulation, it’s a most destructive force used against mankind, but used kindly and openly, it’s our greatest provider.
Writing, too, plays an important role in society. We all like to slip away into a story of adventure or intrigue, something exciting or soothing. Movies, books or games, we all explore fiction and fantasy. Imagination brings each story into existence, and imagination makes it comes alive to the listening, watching or reading the tale.
Don’t let anyone convince you that imagination is not important or is a waste of time.
Cheers, all. 😀
