Imagination Examined

Imagination is big, very big – [Post: Imagine]

Most people far underestimate the scope of  imagination. What comes to mind is the sort of images we see in dreams and when we sit down and fantasize. That’s just part of the picture. Moods are imagination. Some aches and pains are imagination expressing itself. Words that come spinning into our head is imagination. The answer to the question: “How was your day?” is imagination. A song that holds our ear all day long is imagination. Worry and fear is imagination as is regret and sadness. Imagination is there as we communicate using analogies and as we turn to stories projected from our television sets, computers, and smart phones. Imagination is there when we reject certain styles, say of clothing or cars. If we have to reach down to find the last ounce of self-confidence, persistence, or courage, frequently we fire up our imaginations to remember those fictional characters or friends that embodied these attributes.

Imagination is bigger than you think. Fireball Imagery seeks to navigate the wide scope of Imagination and offer helpful information on its nature, art and science.
