"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination
encircles the world." (Albert Einstein)
Imagination is one of the key to living a life on a new level. Before anything
is manifested into existence, it is first dreamed and nourished in our

The world is a canvas on which we draw our life with creative use of
imagination. It is truly magical to create unique things out of thin air.
Reality isn't as pleasant as shown in media. The world is broken and is facing
terrorism, poverty, child abuse, rapes, illness but we can create solutions to
all problems and make a difference with the power of imagination.

The imagination itself also constitutes both, opportunities and dangers. Aware
of opportunities and dangers within our control, we are better able to act in
ways that tends to maximize the opportunities and minimize the dangers. In that
respect, imagination is like other means to knowledge, which has the potential
to be used for both good and bad ends. Since imagination is a means to
knowledge, it inherits some of the instrumental value of knowledge. The more
vividly we imagine it, the more likely it is to move us.
