So much of our world remains shrouded in mystery. We rely on five senses to interpret the universe. And with a vast array of modern interconnected technology, we see great distances and hear sounds earlier generations could never have imagined. We are always and forever smelling, tasting and touching evidence which surrounds. But our individual and collective impressions remain subjective, variable and eccentric. No more than illusions which may or may not resemble objective reality.
Many assumed truths could easily be lies.
The human propensity for creative synthesis,
imaginative conjecture and blind faith seems
unbound. So when people find no rational
explanations or scientific evidence, we indulge
in myths, magic and miracles to evaporate
mysteries in a search for meaning.
“The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.”
“Man lives in a world of surmise, of mystery, of uncertainties.”
“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”
“Fortunately, somewhere between chance and mystery lies imagination, the only thing that protects our freedom, despite the fact that people keep trying to reduce it or kill it off altogether.”
“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.”
― J.G. Ballard
“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.”
― Jean-Jacques Rousseau
“Some might think that the creativity, imagination, and flights of fancy that give my life meaning are insanity.”
― Vladimir Nabokov
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
“Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens”
― Jimi Hendrix
