Can you imagine something that doesn’t yet exist?
Are you able to see a bridge stretched out across a bright and vivid landscape with a bubbling stream briskly flowing beneath? Can you imagine a song not yet sung? Can you see a painting yet to be hung?
Could you imagine your life into the future? Because if you can, you have a beautiful imagination.
Fortunately, there are many who dare to imagine great things. Without imagination, cures for many illnesses would not exist and without imagination we’d still be using horses for transportation.
How many things of today would we have believed to be a miracle only twenty years ago.
One example of this is virtual reality. I remember my first experience with VR back in the 1980’s. It was “far out”, but it was still a very memorable experience and it has improved.
Over the years, VR Headsets have gone from large devices your head could barely support to small portable glasses you can wear, with great picture quality.
Transportation has also seen amazing advances. A big block engine with zero emissions standards was the status quo 20 years ago. We now have electric automobiles and other methods of battery-driven rechargeable transportation that could end the need for fossil fuels.
If Steve Jobs did not visualize Apple, Would the iPhone exist?
Would anyone have ventured into space without creative visualization?
Would the Mona Lisa exist had it not first been imagined?
You even imagined the life you live right now, in some form, long ago.
Have you ever had this strange feeling of Deja Vu?
How can you be sure you didn’t imagine it?
