John Lennon 1940-1980

About: Imagine

IMAGINE

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Imagine that!

Imagination is Great  .  We can even share imaginations ... like participating in a fictional drama ... and sometimes these dramas come true; but considering that these imaginations are objectively trans personal, is, at best madness, and at worst a lie. 


Mark de LA says
I think you missed the point. The song lyrics are about a vision Lennon would love to happen someday!

What kind of gobble-de-gook is this?

Without imagination, there would be no art, no creations, no romance, no movies, no new ideas, & probably no science. A dry & unemotional examination of what is instead of what can be yields nothing that is not already there.  Imagination - lies or madiness? - bring them on!

Seth says
... as i said first thing above
source: seth's first comment above
Imagination is Great 
I have trouble when people talk about objects that were imagined as if they were sensed directly and imply that there is any objective information about these objects that can be exchanged between people.



Mark de LA says
I thought you didn't hold that there is in any pure objective information.

Seth says
... well there are procedures that always end up with the same results regardless of who runs them.

RS claimed the same thing!

Mark de LA says

Without imagination you have no future!   The future is ALL imagination.
