The imagination is a wonderful thing, it is the one thing that drives the world, without imagination we would probably still be living in caves. Imagine if Thomas Edison had no imagination we would still be in the dark, if Columbus had no imagination we would still be on the other side of the ocean. If Benjamin Franklin hadn't invented bi focal a lot of people would almost blind. What did all these and many more people like them have in common, Imagination, It was said once that imagination was more important than knowledge, without imagination knowledge is just knowledge.

Some people can't see past there own nose and others can see past the universe, some have little imagination and others have big imaginations. Some have vivid imaginations and others not so vivid. I'm Henry Ford thought long and hard for days or longer before he finally decide to build the assembly line to mass produce his cars. And I'm sure the guy who invented the wheel, dreamed about it first.

To get your imagination to work first you have to think of a problem, a desire, something you think can happen or something you want to happen.and use your imagination to try and visualize it in your mind. This very process has invented most everything you see from the wheel to the light bulb, from the train to the automobile, from the caculator to the computer. Imagination is an awesome thing and they should devote more class time to developing it.

An example of imagination at work, I have a lot of Glass plates laying around the house and started thinking of a way to use them and once I visualized it in my head, I made a all glass fish tank and it came out just as I pictured it in my head. It is a little odd because the glass pices were all different sizes and I didn't have a glass cutter but its all glass so it still looks good just unusual.

Everytime someone invents something or builds something there is someone who can do it better, people use their imagination to come up with a better idea to make things better, more reliable, smaller, bigger and a whole bunch of other pronouns. Remember when a computer was big as a house, I do now you can put it in your pocket, and its many times more powerful than the first computer.

So lets all our imagination as much as possible, the more you use it the stronger it gets just like Edison he used it over and over until he came up with the light bulb. As an experiment for yourself, try and imagine a world running on nothing but solar panels and windmills, what do you think that would change in the world.
