A buried spiritual tradition on Earth

These are notes I made prior to authoring my collection, Exit From The Matrix:
Back to imagination. The fountainhead.
Imagination has no timetable. It isn’t on a schedule. You can put it on like a coat and move with it at any moment you choose. If you choose.
If you strip away all the layers from any system in the world, you find the original kernel of imagination. All roads lead there.
The Matrix is life without imagination. It hardens into layers of rock and sediment.
Most people want to be “filled up” with a single work of art—somebody else’s work of art.
As imagination in action crosses a threshold of intensity, so-called paranormal abilities kick in.
Imagination is far larger than paranormal abilities, which are really a subset of imagination.
Reality is slow-motion imagination.
Education has turned into the effort to minimize imagination and place it in a region of fog.
All systems tend to move toward imagination, if left alone, if drained of their authoritarian elements. For example, if you could somehow take psychiatry and allow the professionals to invent their categories of so-called mental disorders and treat one another on that basis (and no one else), with harmless placebos, these professionals would eventually arrive at the realization that they were making the whole thing up, lock, stock, and barrel. They would experience knowing they had been employing imagination to sculpt their system and structure. They would rise up right out of their particular Matrix and find themselves as artists.
In the Matrix setting, you get a preponderance of SACRIFICE. I don’t mean generosity or kindness or good will or love. I mean self-abasing sacrifice. It coagulates. It legislates against imagination by pretending that imagination and its freeing force don’t exist.
Imagination happens to be the buried spiritual tradition of planet Earth. A relatively few people have discovered it.
A person has a choice. He can go along for the ride in Matrix, or he can access imagination and embark on the journey of journeys.
