How is a great mind born? It all begins in childhood. Introduce children to the realm of the imagination, and with the grace of the Earth they will learn that reality is a thing of the mind. What can possibly limit such a one?
All too easily, however, the imagination becomes a dangerous escape from reality. Children often stagnate with an incomplete understanding of the imagination. They grow up thinking nothing in the world can harm them, that they can always create their own pleasant reality inside their own minds, independent of the outside world. The imaginary friends of childhood can so very easily grow into the countless religions and superstitions of adulthood. So take care with the children.
