I think as I believe that all process of the human had based on its imagination. All the inventions, discoveries and of course its creations: Art. This power is a present given by God or what so ever, to us to do our works as the Creator self do; to create!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t go well sometimes as we can see in the whole history of man, even now! And it is not the fault of imagination itself but the failure of the education.
Nevertheless, the imagination is very important especially at the beginning as a child. All the children have imagination but there are some parents who don’t take them seriously and these are the lost people who have lost their power of creation; they have lost everything!
The power of imagination caused fantasy to create Art. Art is the blood in the veins in our soul, let it run!
“Without this playing with fantasy, no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.” C. G. Jung
For Al and me, we both might be lucky to grow up with and in our imaginations. Our mother was so busy with the problems which she had hard to solve, couldn’t care about the way how we go with our fantasies but we have used them and built our own world within them; to protect one and the other from the outer world, therefore, we became very solitude and lonesome. Our world was very different with the society in which we’d lived.
So then, let Fantasy go unlimited, to the world of Imagination. 🤗💖

“Fantasy need not always be verbal, nor must there be visual imagery. The account which translates an event into experience may be incorporated bodily through style, gesture, or ritual, like entering into a more subtle or skilled way of going about things. We feel we are getting into the secret of cooking, fingering an instrument, playing· ball, as we fantasy ourselves into a new style. Psychologizing breaks up repetitiveness; it is particularly effective when we perform one activity as if it were another, writing novels as if they were music (like Thomas Mann).”
