I am constantly amazed by the human imaginative capacity. It really is remarkable. I’m floored almost equally how we squash that imagination capacity for those things are ‘real’ ‘achievable’ ‘sustainable’ ‘practical’ and so on. Why?
What I find captivating in this is not just the art creations, those are unbelievably remarkable. But that it took some crisis to have to challenge the norm to go deeper into the self and reflect upon the world to imagine a whole new way. Once that way was visualize it was then another endeavor to make something that had never before been seen or done become a something.
Do we give ourselves a chance to imagine what is before us and what can be? If we don’t, and do not care either, do the rest of society a favor and just get out of the way of those who do. Those are the people who will creatively re-imagine the many practical and sustainable systems that are no longer practical or sustainable. We need to rediscover wonder again..
