Stay away from the machinery of the modern world. It will ruin your imagination.WILLIAM H. GASS
Does that mean we ought to abolish mobile phones and internet? When we imagine something we give a sort of push to our mind so that it thinks. Imagination involves thinking. When we “google” things, we eliminate the process of imagination. When we watch movies on laptops or theatres, it gives you a fully baked information where you can not add anymore ingredients of your own. You are being given a product of someone else’s imagination. When you read a story, you are left to imagine things and people with your capabilities. At some levels, Research has come down to the procedure of few clicks rather than looking for the matter with time and travel. Imagination encourages creativity and it is with creativity that you outweigh others and stand above the crowd. Machinery of the modern age has increased accessibility exponentially. It has plenty of benefits but even more disadvantages. Let’s Imagine more to eradicate the ill-effects of machinery.
“The real tragedy of England, as I see it, is the tragedy of ugliness. The country is so lovely: the man-made is so vile…The great crime which the moneyed classes and promoters of industry committed in the palmy Victorian days was the condemning of the workers to ugliness, ugliness, ugliness: meanness and formless and ugly surroundings, ugly ideals, ugly religion, ugly clothes, ugly furniture, ugly hope, ugly love, ugly houses, ugly relationship between the workers and employers. The human soul needs actual beauty even more than bread.” D.H Lawrence said this for England but today major parts of his words imply globally.
