Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients

Inspiration versus uncontrolled imagination

Inspiration Versus Uncontrolled Imagination as per the Ancients. Lost civilizations assigned numbers to concepts.  Inspiration and Imagination were once defined by number 1080. Author John Michell has written voluminously on this subject. His take expresses Einstein’s thoughts.  However, his take is in terms of an Earth Spirit that encircles world.

This book placed me on a lifetime journey.
The View Over Atlantis originally placed me on a journey to being inspired.

Einstein’s Take on the Subject

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited. Whereas, imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein As quoted in “What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck“. The Saturday Evening Post (26 October 1929) q:Albert_Einstein

 

Inspiration Comes From Imagination
When is something inspired and when is it just wild imagination? Einstein knew the difference.

For many it can be extremely difficult to distinguish between between the state of being inspired and uncontrolled imagination.  I will relate it to an article in the New York Times. It is front page in the Arts & Leisure section. Date is Sunday June 10, 2018. Suffice it to say, aspiring can draw from imagination.

Inspiration Can Have Controlled and Uncontrolled Aspects

The New York Times article is entitled “Home is Where the Horror Is.” It talks about how in cinema today stating: Horror has never been more bankable and celebrated than it is now. Michell, in his City of Revelation, discusses the difference between being inspired and wild imagination. Basically, the number 1080 applies to both. Michell has an entire chapter on this number. He writes about how: “The mystic’s vision and the the lunatics nightmare derive from the same source.” Most important, he writes, “the individual alone is responsible for the different forms they assume.”

So What Causes the Lunatic’s Nightmare?

When 1080 takes on the lunatics nightmare aspect, there is a cause. It is usually a reaction against excessive  power and brute force being used  to solve problems. Tone down the brute force, and the lunatic’s nightmares will also lessen. This internal link below explains a little more about number 1080.
