I is for Imagination

From the dictionary : Imagination is “the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.”s.

Imagination – we know what it is, we often wish we were imaginative and yet we often doubt that we have it. We think of artists and musicians as imaginative

Yet we all have it and we can all express it. It is important, it is as necessary as breathing.

From   Tao de Haas

“The ability to imagine things pervades our entire existence. It influences everything we do, think about and create. It leads to elaborate theories, dreams and inventions in any profession from the realms of academia to engineering and the arts. Ultimately, imagination influences everything we do regardless of our profession.

Imagination is the key to innovation.”

 

We may need to work at it, but we can be creative, imaginative, innovative. It is just a matter of degree.

world-populationI was on the US Census Bureau’s page and I discovered that there are nearly 7.5 billion INDIVIDUALS in the world presently, 7,495,846,704 as of August 30, 2018.

And two of the four most populous countries in the world start with the letter I, at least in English:

  1. China 1,384,688,986
  2. INDIA 1,296,834,042
  3. United States 329,256,465
  4. INDONESIA 262,787,403
  5. Brazil 208,846,892
  6. Pakistan 207,862,518
  7. Nigeria 195,300,343
  8. Bangladesh 159,453,001
  9. Russia 142,122,776
  10. Japan 126,168,156

Of course, there are other countries starting with the letter I: ICELAND, IRAN, IRAQ, IRELAND, ISRAEL

I am INTRIGUED how the country adjective forms differ:

Ending with IC: Icelandic

Ending with N: Indian, Indonesian, Iranian

Ending with I: Iraqi (or Iraki), Israeli

Ending with SH: Irish
