    Imaginative Ideas- Time to Explore
    Imaginative Ideas- Time to ExploreI am overwhelmed with the idea of this buzz. In fact I feel it is the culmination of my life experiences. We talk so much about ideas generation, but very little about imaginative ideas even though they would provide us with unlimited...

    #5 #6 #8 #14 #15 OK I read the Comments first before replying, as I knew there would be a flurry of sparks here (and what a pic to start it off!). So, I'm seeing imagination taking us out of the 'Dear, too good to be true dear, ;-), and wondering if....well, it does -imagination leads to invention (although Necessity is also the Mother of Invention), then I truly feel a powerful presence of "Magic" and things disappearing completely into fractal space. No one can think of a magic trick without imagination, and plenty of famous Houdini trances far beyond to the illusion of a cube. Or a dove flying. Anatomically, that gets us to the eyes and how vision from both peripheral fields 'crosses over' behind the nose to get to the back of the brain. Thus, one can stare at two differently colored dots on a screen, then they change one dot and why! it disappears! ...or did it? ...was that just 'washing out' of the rods and cones in the retina (which is upside down)? So now, I have to tell you that I was a professional magician on stage at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA during medical school at USC. Many doctors are attracted to magic, you see. And being the 7th Magician Member of this Private Club, I performed in front of the Board of Directors to make the 9,227th magician. So...imagination permeates magic in many more ways than one thinks. (Unless you're performing to children, in which case they are very difficult to 'fool.' A really good magician does good magic in front of children...who have more imagination than adults. So why is this? What do we lose when we grow up? Hmm.

    we all are accustomed to be addressed with "dear" from your end. surprisingly when the word is missing in your comment, it makes a different impact comparing to the comment containing with "dear" word, which very rarely happen. so the contentment and discontentment, both feelings are lying in our faculty and being ignited with a apparently mere word"dear". this is an example of exquisite quality human brain perhaps only possess, ushering to garner knowledge. you generates unique ides and i only try to translate it with my little ability and surprisingly being admired by you profusely. i am privileged and honored sir.

    Great insight sir Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd. intriguing indeed! i guess, the vulnerability we face when the reflection are being produced by the nature honestly in our cerebral, we trigger to unearth the misty of nature. i guess, you know the chemistry best, in terms of understanding the character of any matter in the external world we confront, and knowledge is the qualitative change a matter reflects in our brain in the continuity of changing phenomenon we observe in the nature. howevr, as usual a phenomenal post sir. thank you very much for such thought provoking post.

    #8 It is enriched by your first comment and your term "imaginative assets", which opened my eyes to huge possibilities. I am awaiting for dear @Sara Jacobovici response.

    #6 A very rich idea dear brother @Ali Anani. The co-authored book with @Sara Jacobovici would be an institution in itself.

    #5 Dear brother @Anees Zaidi- every comment on this buzz is of special value to me and your comment is very dear as well. I have just messaged dear @Sara Jacobovici suggesting to her co-authoring a book on imagination. I find deep down that imagination is one of the most under-valued topics and therefore I am very encouraged by your comment. Thank you, brother

    While we were still making our 'dunes' with the rippling effect of your 100th. buzz, dear brother @Ali Anani you have challenged our imaginations with your 101st throw. "We should go beyond our limited senses and knowledge. We need to be more imaginative", I see this as a wake up call for our institutions of learning as well. I see a need to establish 'School of Imagination Management' to formalize the management and use of Imaginative assets.

    TO DO: Build Your Child's Imagination: 10 Ways Here.


    ""I think when you present the idea of imagination to parents, they are generally in favor of it," says Thomas Armstrong, author of Awakening Your Child's Natural Genius ($15, J.P. Tarcher). "Yet when you probe a little deeper and center in on how much time parents and teachers wish to allocate to imagination in the schools, you find a very different attitude." Of course, imagination is something we should all favor. Child-development experts unanimously celebrate the benefits of a healthy imagination. A child with a good imagination is happier and more alert, better able to cope with life's twists and turns, and more likely to grow into a well-adjusted, secure adult."

    DID YOU KNOW? Raising educated children is not just about "reading."

    In the USA, career success & high school graduation are linked to how well a child reads by Third Grade (i.e., age 8 or so).

    Amazing Factoid: 2/3 of USA 3rd-graders fail to read well.

    This 2014 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) paper states:

    "A new AAP policy statement recommends that pediatric providers advise parents of young children that reading aloud and talking about pictures and words in age-appropriate books can strengthen language skills, literacy development and parent-child relationships."

    #1 You got it! Reminds me of "Quality Time" with your children. Hmm. How much "Quality Time" do we spend actually looking into her eyes? What if your child was your "Job" as in, "Career?" Would you, as an Entrepreneur, or would your Boss like the amount of "Quality Time" you spend at work? Let's translate that thought into the brainwork, network, spiders, gliders, and growth of our "mini-Me-BeeZ."

    And not on a "screen" but in an actual book... with real pages!

    Children do have avid imaginations....and parents can help to add to it, too! Here's a place for stories, memories, advice for future Beez who have Baby Beez...and some of your own inventions that you had when you were small.

    Because all children know that there is a man on the moon, yet not all adults can actually see his face.

    And all children also know that there are monsters under the bed, yet all adults know that is pure folly. "Oh golly, I used to think that, too!"

    P.S. So is this a picture of a flower? ...or is it a bird? ...or is it a 'birlower' or a 'flird?' Also stirring Authors Along!
