Is there something wrong with having a vision of a great adventure? Looking around at society today, you might think so.
But the individual, bombarded though he might be with propaganda and group-think, still wants it. He wants the feeling of greater space and the power to make something new happen.
He wants relief from repetition and boredom. He wants the thrill of “new worlds.” And not just in his thoughts, but in his life.
The adventure begins in imagination—and by that I mean a great deal more than a flicker of hope or an occasional burst of energy.

On the other side of the line is an infinity of possibility…undiscovered territory. Untapped potential. The unknown.
The North Star in this vast territory is imagination. It’s the North Star and the engine and the vision. It’s endlessly renewing energy and creative power.
Why? How? Because the individual is built for that kind of life. Whereas society is built for something else. Society is engineered for systems and organization and control.
