How Do You Use Your Imagination?

The majority of people today allow their imagination to become inactive or rarely used. Of the two types Synthetic is the most used. How do you your imaination?



The Fifth Step toward Riches

A new born child has instincts, breathing starts when it comes from the mother’s womb, some do require encouragement. Its instincts lead to it sucking on the mother’s nipple to obtain life giving milk. Mammals in the Animal Kingdom have the same instincts. Imagination is different I asked the question on the Caches Corner Call whether we are born with imagination. Michael said “yes”. So what activates it?

Is it a young child’s desires to roll from one position to another, to stand up or to walk? I can see that these desires would cause activation of the creative imagination. Having created these desires they would be stored for later recall and perhaps further learning to say change walking into running. Therefore as Hill states there are two forms of imagination synthetic and creative. The former, Synthetic, is the most widely used by the majority of people.

People like Henry Ford had well developed creative imaginations, take for instance Ford’s dream of a single casting for an engine block. Every one said it was not possible but Ford insisted that he required it and he would have it. He worked on the statement that, “anything a man can conceive can be created“. Other examples of imagination are the story of the Enchanted Kettle sold to a drug store clerk for $500.00, together with a formula written on a single sheet of paper. What was the secret ingredient the clerk imagined which changed the formula and birthed a multi-billion dollar company and employed a whole town. It further supported education and spread worldwide. The Company, Coca Cola.

Hill also cites the case of a pastor Dr. Gunsaulus, who dreamed of a university were students would be taught practical subjects instead of the theoretical, thus equipping them for today’s world. He ponder on how he could raise the 1 million dollars to commence such a project for more than two years but it was not until he decided to take action and put the idea to infinite intelligence coupled with a demand that the one million dollars he required would be provided within a week that things happened.

An announcement in the local newspapers stated that he would preach the following day on ‘what I would do if I had a million dollars’. He prepared the Sermon, read it the following morning before he departed only to realize that when he came to deliver the Sermon he had left his well prepared notes at home. Delivering Sermon via what existed in his subconscious mind, had unexpected and immediate results. Someone was so inspired by what he heard, that he there and then undertook to provide the million dollars requested. Thus the Armour Institute of Technology was founded.

In my own life Imagination has come to my assistance in many instances. This has ranged from simple suggestions on modifying a room’s decoration to give the feeling of increased size, to solutions of obtaining materials with straightness tolerances outside the accepted norm.

However I believe my imagination was really taxed in finding a means of testing a material’s through thickness ability to withstand welding stress which in some materials would cause the material to tear in a longitudinal direction and causes failure. The solution was to devise a simple bending device which could stress a small thin through thickness section to stresses similar to those encountered during the welding process.

Architects use creative imagination where synthetic imagination cannot meet the dreams of a particular client. Engineers use creative imagination to provide solutions to complex construction problems arising from man’s desire to build ever lager and higher buildings on land considered by past generations as being unsuitable.

Man’s imagination has allowed him to achieve remarkable things such as flying faster than the speed of sound, place a man on the moon, have staging station for space ships in space together with a laboratory. Communication is possible not only around the World but also in outer space. Computers carry out complex calculations in a fraction of a second and allow messages to be transferred in milliseconds. Truly “anything a man can conceive can be created“.
