“Imagination is more important than knowledge. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”
-Albert Einstein

Creative flow thought - like daydreaming, of endless possibilities, is perhaps as important as investigation.

Nietzsche once wrote that if man didn’t dream, there would be no metaphysics.

To be is to perceive. Nothing is real except for the sensations in our mind.

Is the substance of body or anything else be any more than the collection of ideas included in that thing?

All substances are comprised of sensations, qualities, appearances and ideas.

Qualities are not external to the mind.

They go through a mysterious realm external to the mind.

Sensible qualities cannot exist or be supposed to exist without a mind.

What we perceive is the real world. To be is to perceive.

The real world is mind dependent. Yet how do we know that our own perceiving does not deceive ourselves from time to time?

How shall the mind, when it perceives nothing but its own ideas, know that they agree with the nature of things themselves?

If we can only perceive our own sensations in existence by that of the ideas the comprise them does this not show consciousness or self awareness as a perpetual dream in the face of actual reality?

But that is a assumption that things cannot exist without our knowing of them.

Within our limited perception for all we know there exists things we can never comprehend.
