almighty imagination ...

"...the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth." Genesis 8:21
is not imagination more powerful than thought ? is not Imagination more important than knowledge ? is not life imagination ?
religion has attempted to create order out of our unpredictable world using non-rational or faith-based rules and social myths to insure security and create peace.
a world governed strictly by reason does not provide any flexibility and lack of imagination becomes the agent of fear and self-righteousness.
"reality" is the mirror of the interplay of imagination and thought ... true sense of beauty and imagination is only developed through observation of nature...

da minkee is always superior to us Suresh. Da Minkee has not created gods for themselves.

We have a wealth of knowledge about nature and we don't seem to learn anything from it. We humans are the aliens in our own planet.

What the writers of Genesis forgot was, the story of Genesis itself is a product of imagination, very poor imagination at that. A five year old child can come up with a better story. According to their own words Genesis itself is evil.

What they are are actually saying is, 'don't cook up another story, our story is final'

rauf, da minkee is such a sincere, hard working, no-nonsense, sheer survivor and one who enjoys its existence at the same time.

rauf, do u know that 1% of the population owns 99% of the worlds wealth ? god offers tremendous help here to the 1%. u know what i mean.

we humans simply forget to understand that everyone and all creatures are playing the same "zero-sum game"... here is where we miss the big picture ... and this calls for a seperate post !
