    Imagination Is Your Liberator

    We are all trained to react a certain way when sometime happens.  Did you ever notice how a newscaster puts on a persona and tries to act sufficiently concerned or whatever, depending on the news? The fact of the matter is that reality is whatever you make it.  If you...

    Non-existent Places

    Okay, so tell me. Do any of you ever dream about places, and then think about them later during your day? I do, a lot. I'll be sitting in class, just daydreaming, imagining what these places would be like it they were real. But, what if they were real? The world is a big place...

    Most of my time is consumed by day dreaming,

    and I love it. I create these really complex characters, even a fake celebrity that I pretend is real. You name it I've probably imagined something off of it. And I can never ever ever stop thinking.

    Ok.

    My psychiatrist says I live in my head to much, that sometimes I believe I'm not real, that I'm dead or something, anything but alive. Im not sure what to do anymore, im scared one day I'll snap.

    In Everything I Do

    I love to write and picture it in my mind. I daydream constantly and dream up all sorts of stories. I attempt to be descriptive so that someone can imagine with me. I don't write everything I imagine as some is just too dark but with my mind always wondering the things I come up...

    Most People's Imaginations Are Too Limited

    First comes thought; then organization of

    that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. © Napoleon Hill

    It's Necessary to Convey the Spirit of Life!

    Imagination, in my opinion, is just another root of intelligence. You have to have imagination in order to have intelligence because it provides that oompf to give you ideas no one else would think of. It's the logic inside the logic. A critical cognitive skill!
