“To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes.
Of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought: into Eternity.
Ever expanding in the Bosom of God, the Human Imagination.” - William Blake
“God is the imaginer of His One Idea. All imagining is God's imagining. All creating forms in this thought universe of God's imagining are built in the image of His imagining, creating “in His image”.” - Walter Russell
“Mind is all there is. It has no limitations as to shape, size or volume, for these qualities are but appearances and have no real existence. Mind is limited, however, in its power, its knowledge and its imagination, the last of which is its creative force. (…) The objective universe of man's concept demands a “beyond” to a finite universe. But there is no “beyond”, because there are no bounds nor boundaries in this formless universe.” - Walter Russell
“The genius, the super-thinker with imagination, who brings beauty to the world, is inspired man thinking in light. The greater the imagination the greater the perception of the reality of universal existence, hence the greater the intelligence. The lesser the imagination the greater the reality of the appearance of existence. The greater the imagination the nearer to One-ness and the farther from the animal. The inspired genius of great imagination has great intelligence.” - Walter Russell
“The power of imagination makes us infinite.” - John Muir
“Thus I have been led unconsciously to evolve what I consider a new method of materializing inventive concepts and ideas, which is radically opposite to the purely experimental and is in my opinion ever so much more expeditious and efficient. The moment one constructs a device to carry into practice a crude idea he finds himself unavoidably engrost with the details and defects of the apparatus. As he goes on improving and reconstructing, his force of concentration diminishes and he loses sight of the great underlying principle. Results may be obtained but always at the sacrifice of quality. My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get an idea I start at once building it up in my imagination. I change the construction, make improvements and operate the device in my mind. It is absolutely immaterial to me whether I run my turbine in thought or test it in my shop. I even note if it is out of balance. There is no difference whatever, the results are the same. In this way I am able to rapidly develop and perfect a conception without touching anything. When I have gone so far as to embody in the invention every possible improvement I can think of and see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form this final product of my brain. Invariably my device works as I conceived that it should (…)” - Nikola Tesla
