Imagination - forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.
The architect that built the Empire State Building had to first imagine the structure before it could be built.
It would be a waste not to use our gift of the imagination.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." - A. Einstein
