I think imagination is very underestimated and under-appreciated. Just consider for a moment that most everything we think has a physiological
response--as if it were real and really happening!
When we think of scary imagery, we become nervous, sweaty, and our heart rate increases.
When we think of tranquil images, our bodies produce a more relaxed physiological state.
Heck, all we have to do is think of some enticing imagery to become sexually aroused.
So, why does the body and brain act as if our thoughts are actual, factual stimuli?
I think there is more to our imaginations than we give it credit for. The body and brain seem to give them validity; why don't we?
