Imagination is the power of creativity. All humans are born with imagination. We use it every day to create what we have in our lives. Imagination helps us to see and store images of things we want to accomplish in our minds. It is easy to create reality if our minds have clear pictures of what we want in life. Though everyone practice imagination. Not everyone can create new ideas from imagination.
There is a way we can imagine and catch new and unique images of things in life. Also, there is a way we can imagine and come up with nothing rather than the same repeated images. We can imagine and discover new ideas if our mindsets are programmed to be receptive to new ideas. Also, we can imagine and discover nothing rather than information if our mindsets are not programmed to be receptive to new ideas.
It's all depends on how we have programmed our mindsets on imagination. Those who practice radical imagination catch new ideas and become great designers, extraordinary, rich, and wealthy. But those who practice ordinary catch nothing rather than enjoying watching these images in their minds.
What is Radical Imagination?
Radical Imagination is the ability to visualize beyond the fundamental nature of something. We see not only the image of known facts, but we also focus our minds in a way that we can appreciate and visualize beyond. Visualizing beyond the known facts helps us to catch new ideas. We get new ideas by imagining beyond the known facts. Otherwise, we end up enjoying watching the galley of images without producing any new ideas.
Radical imagination is an architect of new features in our minds. It is the art of catching new features beyond the known nature. We discover new features by keeping our minds open to learn more and discover more. Our minds learn more if we program to ask the following questions for every visualization.
- Why only this?
- How does it look if we make some changes?
- What will happen if we add some features?
Radical Imagination helps us to look at things from different perspectives. Many inventions and innovations that break the status quo came from radical imagination.
Nicola Tesla, who worked in the early 1900, made many inventions. He developed the ability to visualize his work to get a clear picture of what he wanted. He used radical imagination to visualize and discover electric currents, magnetic fields, and complex rotating machinery.
How to Program Radical Imagination

- Always appreciate what others think.

- Always imagine more than what is known?

The following image is known as the image of a heart. Whenever you imagine the heart, this image comes to your mind. This image represents the heart because it looks like a heart. It is a known fact of the image of a heart.
By using our ordinary imagination, this image of the heart is final and end. We believe there is no alternative because we limit our minds to imagining beyond the known facts.
But by using radical imagination, this is not the final and end image of a heart. The mind is open to imagining more with the following options;
- What will happen if we change the design?
- How does it look if we add some features?
- Is there an alternative to this image?
- Why this image?
By using radical imagination, we appreciate and acknowledge that this is the image of a heart. But, it is not true that this is the only image of a heart. This kind of imagination helps you to catch new ideas and features.
