The Neuroscience Of Imagination

The Neuroscience Of Imagination | Genius | Scoop.it
Understanding how imagination works could be the key to daydreaming yourself into a sharper, more creative person.
more...
Eli Levine's curator insight, March 31, 1:26 PM

On one hand, the imagination is a world of hallucinations and opinions that have no grounding in reality and no basis in facts.

 

On the other hand, it is the design space in our minds to create a much wider array of stuff than is in the actual universe, such that we can figure out new ways of operating on and in this plane of existence.

 

It must always be checked out against the long and short term effects of those actions in the real world.  It is useful to have this portable design space in order to problem solve and bring about new innovations for our world.  The trouble comes when people live in their imaginations rather than try to be aware of how their imaginative thoughts are only just thoughts until they are proven (or disproven) to be otherwise.

 

Think about it.
