The Imagination and Science

The earth being held in our hands.

“I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.”  Albert Einstein, On Cosmic Religion and Other Opinions and Aphorisms

Food for thought:

Is this not the meeting place…for each breathing person on the planet?  Cultivation of the imagination and hence, creativity, is fundamental, for *all* of us. No more saying: “There’s the creative types, and then the scientific types.” We are all witnessing, and participating in, creative evolution.  The next step, all of us becoming conscious and  respectful of our respective disciplines and shared realities; all the while cultivating collaborative visions for being present for the planet, for our children, for one another, for the air we breathe, for the water we drink, for the fire of our imaginations, for all creatures great and small.  Thoughts?
