Have you ever imagined what infinity looks like, feels like. What do you picture in your mind when you think of infinity? Come on if i tell you to think of a black hen then quite sure enough i know you would have imagined it within a few seconds ,so what about infinity?.If i tell you to imagine the exact appearance of your backbone without the use of mirror will you? If i get to conclude that the only thing you cant see or imagine is that which exist inside you or within you. With that conclusion we can say that we are the whole universe or the infinity we are trying to imagine about and that is why we cant explore everything because we are the universe itself.
Somebody might ask, is this property of not able to comprehend infinity be an inability or just a realisation of how infinite we are ,and in the process attempting to comprehend itself like a man attempting to comprehend the appearance of his own backbone.
Can you imagine of something that you haven’t seen before ,if at all none has ever spoken of it before?
Can you imagine the exact appearance of your own backbone without going for MRI scan?
And finally ,is there any idea that exist that was brought from an idea that never existed before. I mean if imaginations comes from only observable features, the it means everything that exist today came from those that existed before.
But before we conclude in that direction, we need to ask ourselves, do we create realities or machines out of imaginations or we create it out of instinct. If the objective world is formed purely out of imaginations then am sorry we are only recreating that which had been recreated before perhaps with small modifications here and there so that it appears new.
Modifications can take various forms. You can combine two different subjects to form a new. An example is two circles with different colors. Other forms of modification may include expansion, contraction, stretching,changing color ,changing shapes and others.
Yet what propels the form that imagination will take is what we call as necessity. They say necessity is the mother of invention. Necessity pushes us against the wall when existing things can no longer solve our problem.
Yet with such pressure offered by nature .Our instinct plays role, it usually triggers an impulse of desire which lights up imagination .
Usually, the imagination itself is crude to the extent it cannot be seen but can be felt. If the feeling is held and given proper attention, imagination come i to action. The mind assembles the already existing tools that its accustomed with.
The fact that we can only imagine from what we found existing in our objective world is quite a handicap on our side.
