Philosophy Wire: Kill imagination…

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-07-07]:

“Mom! A lion is chasing me!”

“Go to sleep again baby. It was just a dream”…

We teach children to kill their imagination in favor of the reality we have created. We teach them that dreams are fake and… what exactly? is real. We try to learn philosophy when we get old, but we have killed true philosophy too early. And then we feel surprised when we learn quantum mechanics.

Close your eyes. See the lion. Right in the eyes.

The dream is not a dream. Let’s start from that.
And everything else will then fall apart. Only to be built from scratch again.

Be the lion.
