The truth of Imagination - from William Wildblood


We currently live in an outer world where randomness and general purposelessness are the order of the day.

None of this means there is anything intrinsically spiritual about myth or fantasy or even imagination, but they can point to the spiritual. The world of myth and fantasy is a middle ground between the material world and the spiritual world, and that is why it seems more real than the former while, in its turn, is less real than the latter.
