I'm saying that Imagination, even if we accept that it is The Most Important Thing in the Universe, is not alone sufficient.


I'm glad I overstated the case for imagination because it has produced such a prodigy of insights.

Thank you for taking the time to illuminate me, for I am certainly unschooled in science.

The sweep of your science has eclipsed the sweep of my imagination.

P.S. If your last post was "the easier" of your two replies to compose, because you are partially in agreement to begin with, then I am certainly in for a rare treat*.

I don't mind being wrong if I am the better for it in the end. [I have probably left myself vulnerable to some punster by ending in this fashion, but, for once, this gnat is at a loss for words.]

*plus ultra ... for which I am thankful.
