On a tight leash

A raging debate is on between reason and imagination. The mind has been contemplating relations, however produced. The mind adds colour to the thoughts as they are composed from elements, each containing within itself the principle of its own integrity. In the Utopian world there would have been a perfect synthesis of the two. But with the sheer number of external and internal impressions that are created in a person's head, it is difficult to balance both reason and imagination. The future is contained within the present - there is good reason to believe that. But it is up to imagination to visualise that future. Man with all his passions and his pleasures yearns to be the passion and the pleasure of the other. Imagination has no barriers but reason puts it on a leash.
