    What made science, did science make science or did imagination make science?

      That is one of those questions our finite minds cannot comprehend.  Our current state of being prevents such.  However, the time will come when we will be able to comprehend such things.  When that time comes it will be given freely to us.

        I think the imagination created science. I think it's an easy answer.

          True, it is an easy answer. The weak minded and the gullible accept easy answers as they have not the capacity for thought.

            lol Since you are such a "powerful mind", why don't you explain why I am wrong.

            And I think those without better answers lurk around and snipe at those that make legitimate contributions to threads.

            I agree with you completely, marine. Imagination had to wonder, had to come up with an experiment and hypothesis before science could be created. Therefore, it's an easy answer because science has a definition, and in order for that definition to be met, imagination must be present.

      Combination of all would probably be more accurate.  All things are first begotten spiritually before they are temporally.  So there is a scientific method and order in the connection between spirit and matter.  And if things are begotten spiritually then the same applies to matters of the spirit.  All things have a science or order behind them, no doubt.  I think that science in connection with intelligence sparks imagination.

        almost correct, GP.

        consciousness and enigma make up both science and religion.
        that spark is the relationship between them, sparking images, ideas, ideologies, hope.

      i think imagination came first. didn't Einstein himself say that imagination was a necessary component for science? i mean, you have to imagine what a light bulb or telephone is before you begin the scientific process to create one.

      I'd say it is imagination that made science . Imagination creates sci-fi and sci-fi, through time becomes science.

    science is the male-mystic, the alpha of the marriage.
    his wife -religion.
    He left her for a time to seek his own, but has all but returned to her bosom.

    what is imagination? a string of thoughts within the finite of the human brain. science (like religion) is a consciousness/awareness of things. Science by 'discovery'. Still a relationary parallel of the Need To Know. A complex group of thoughts, yes. novel, no. So then that leaves only one thing, hope.
    Hope is imagination at its finest.

      how is the human brain finite if it is a manifestation of the infinite imagination of the creative will?  and is it left only to humans to imagine?  all beings have spirit and have an imagination which is the wellspring of all that is manifest.

    so then, what remains:

    faith, hope, love and the greatest of them: love
    the fruit of the Spirit is: love

    faith = living beyond consciousness | 'unbelievable, beyond belief'
    hope = living in consciousness
    love* = the fullness of both faith & hope

    *infinite imagination, beyond consciousness (logic), beyond believing (faith), beyond consideration (hope).

    being
