i find it quite the opposite. had we not had imagination, most things today would not exist, therefore, we wouldnt be very knowledgeable beings, and, knowledgeable as we think we are, we aren't. In 50 years, somebody will look back at us with the same thoughts we have of those before us, and they wont understand us so its a circle really, between knowledge and imagination
haha good point but i dont think its totally true, everything is based on something that already exists, so knowing things comes first. Planes: Birds for instance, and if you dont know the water, you cant build a boat. Thats my point of view, I mean, look at the superheroes, spiderman, Spider + human + Imagination = Spiderman.
A question, have you done something out of nothing, something new, that its not based on something that already exist? I havent . And most people havent, and that doesnt mean that we ran out of imagination.
