What Was Einstein Thinking?

"Imagination is more important than knowledge" – Albert Einstein

Why would one of the smartest people in history say something so counterintuitive? We are taught to depend on knowledge.  However, knowledge is based on the past. It’s what has already been discovered and what we already know. The future rests in part on that knowledge, but more importantly, by its very definition, it requires something that does not already exist.

True imagination is conjured up from nothing. If you allow yourself to think from nothing – suspend all knowledge and preconceptions and allow yourself to be with nothing – you will be amazed at the possibilities that enter your mind.

When you allow yourself to enter the world of imagination, you can create knowledge. All the great inventors who have provided us with hypothesis and proofs for us to learn know this. They invented knowledge from nothing. 

What knowledge will you invent today?
