What is ‘Imagination’? please, no examples of…?

So, in the case of Imagination… the guiding hand of creativity, of hallucinations, of dreams… what IS it? In the arts of divining, astral projection, summonings… in the wakeful dreaming states of spiritual rapture, of drug and poison-induced hallucinations, of divine visions…

WHAT GUIDES THE HAND OF THE MIND?

The answer ‘god’ is forbidden in this answering, for not only does it show the inability to vary your answers, but it does not satisfy my curiousity. Being that I study the Qabalah and use many references to gods, angels, kings, etc… I tend to say that it is the ‘creative powers of the archangels’, but merely a metaphore is all that that is… for what?

It seems that Imagination has purpose, it gave us literature/ language/ art/ science/ and more…

I like to think that the imagination is a portal to other places (which are infinite). OR that it’s a way our mind attaches sensory symbols to iimpulses that would otherwise be beyond knowing. Or both. Or neither. The “portal” explanation is my favorite, though.

The Mind can continue to deceive you with logically, meaningful answers, cause you trust the mind so much

I imagine that one could define imagination as the interpolation of reality into non-reality or potential.

All imagination is the same thing to me.

Imagination is using the mind to create a universe, or reality. I think of an apple, and in some universe, there is an apple, in whatever setting I saw it in, etc.

What guides it? your will. You can imagine anything you will.
