Overlay is something which sits on top, and sometimes it’s a pattern which one puts over something, which one can use to make a copy of the original.
And the more and more one looks at the imagination, one of it’s roles and functions appears to act as an overlay for our reality that we create and experience.
For one of the ways that we perceive this world is through our imagination, of what is yet to come.
“Imagination is everything. It’s the preview of life’s coming attractions” – Albert Einstein
And this is where starting from the bigger picture and working backwards, gathering the details, develops a better understanding to what is going on.
Everything is information in one form or another
We appear to live in some form of interactive information field, which we call for a better word consciousness
We have a tool, which we call for a better word, our imagination, which we use to sculpt, mold and paint upon the fabric of this reality
The Imagination is on all the time, therefore is creating and influencing our reality continuously
We appear to live in some form of simulation, which is both fractal and holographic in nature
And in becoming a bigger picture thinker, one begins to see the whole house, rather than just continually studying a screw, of a hinge, of a cupboard in a single room, and if one begins to understand the nature of fractals, one will realise that if one makes a change in one part, it will make a change to that pattern throughout.
The Mandelbrot Set
So hopefully the above does help, and once one sees the bigger picture, the role our imagination plays begins to take on a bigger significance, for everything has more than one function and role.
The Imagination is more than just coming up with new creative ideas, it also has a role in the formation of our realities that we experience and perceive
