That would be hilarious.
We could get two of the greatest minds in history together, tell them to imagine entirely opposite concepts, and then
BAM! The universe implodes!
To actually add my thoughts to this idea... I think the OP is on the right track in that if you can conceptualize something, it isn't impossible to
exist. Just because I can wish I lived in a world where pink unicorns run around drinking pink waterfalls in a land of pink candy (and who doesn't?
), it doesn't mean that world exists somewhere. This idea is applicable to art, creation, design, etc. An artist visualizes something in his/her
mind, and then creates it. It doesn't necessarily actually exist somewhere. That would defy all logical thinking, and we don't wanna go BACKWARDS
in our learning experience!
