    Lightbulb Imagination V Reality

    What is the borderline difference between what is real and what we imagine.
    Reality cruises the mind and imagination teases it.
    Is there such a thing as reality without people?

    You are essentially asking if something can be and not be at the same time. Aristotle would give a resounding no. But Aristotle never heard of......





    So...yes.

    Aristotle was an aithereological spontaneously arriving fly that never learned how to cook and together with Plato produced a lot of ulcers.

    That's funny: there was a quote I recently read that was (I may be paraphrasing): "Aristotle would have written more if he learned to cook."

    That must have been an Epicurian touch.

    Humm I think Aristotle and Plato together would have made a potent dish if they were let. Now that is an imagination to be reckoned with. Where is Nostradamus when we need him?

    EpicuREAn? Intriguing word a one I never knew of. Sensuality and food... I am not so sure of the meaning of the two.

    How interesting. Cooking requires skills and attention to details. Writing I guess is the same.
