Imagination Is About Reality

Stuart K. Hayashi

  • I could eat something that kills me. But, for the most part, I eat to live. Eating is for survival.

  • I can use language to tell a lie. But one relies on language to tell the truth and to learn it in conceptual detail. More than not, language is the tool for learning and transmitting the truth.

  • I can use my imagination to indulge in, and transmit, delusions. But all deductions rely on imagination; rational decision-making relies on imagination. Imagination is the tool for comprehending and living in reality.
