" Imaginations is more important than knowledge" said Einstein.
What do you see in the picture here?
i'll help you... it's made of mud....it's created by my 5 yrs old granddaughter....have you guessed?... i tried... unsuccessfully..
i'll help you : this is a CAT BRIDGE, she explained. She built it for the cats so they could exit it their garden ( instead of getting lost without a trail... )... So simple.. so pure... and so very necessary.
Who can argue the logic of a child ! And who could say that "they are just cute" ...
Children's logic is so vast because it belongs to the realm of "practical world" and the "imaginative world".
i'm not sure there is a difference between the two. Actually i know there is none. The only questions is if we dare dwelling in these two worlds.
The first one is consensus reality; the second is as real as the first one, but it's creative; it's un-limited; it's rich exciting; it's filled with marvel, wonder and awe ! This is why children are so easily and naturally creative.
Pablo Picasso said : "every child is an artist.The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up". An adult who's not afraid to "remain a child" , will find creativity a permanent dweller ( or at least frequent guest....)
