Why is Imagination more Important than Knowledge?

Albert Einstein was right when he said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

But why?

Because true imagination is pretty rare. Most NEW ideas aren’t NEW at all. They’re based on something that has already been done.

Where’s the imagination in that?

Eric Pepin, author of the bestselling book The Handbook of the Navigator, recently hosted a talk where he said that all imagination is based on past memory. You can’t imagine something completely new, you had to have based that imagination on something you’ve seen before.

Here’s where it gets really interesting…

If all imagination is based on memory, who’s to say that particular memory has to come from this lifetime, or this civilization or even this planet?

Think about it, can you imagine a color that you’ve never seen before? Go ahead and try. Imagine a color you have never seen before.

Notice what your brain does? It starts trying to create a mix, based on what you already know.

You may be able to visualize your bedroom walls, and you may be able to imagine those walls changing color or texture. But that’s not true imagination, it’s creative visualization.

Every color that you see in your visualization came from something you’ve seen before.

Can you visualize your walls being the color of infrared?

No, because you’ve never seen that color. Not in this human body.

This is what makes imagination so important. The bigger your imagination, the more knowledge and memories you can access… it’s the key to past-life recall!

Not only that, it’s the key to opening your mind to see greater levels of reality. Levels that exist outside of what you’ve experienced in this life, into the great unknown.
