According to co-founder Scott Barry Kaufman, a new website called The Imagination Institute “is dedicated to making progress on the measurement, groth, and improvement of imagination across all sectors of society.”
It’s based on the assumption, with which TVWriter™ heartily agrees, that imagination is one of humanity’s most precious resources. So it follows that knowing more about what constitutes imagination and what conditions help it grow would be a great benefit to us all.
Especially those of us with imagination.
The Imagination Institute is putting together “scientists from various disciplines…and is dedicated to making progress on the measurement, growth, and improvement of imagination across all sectors of society.” It’s funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, a Pennsylvania non-profit.
What do you think? Can something good really come out of this or is the site just another example of non-creative types chasing their scientific method tails? Can it help you? Can you help it?
Only one way to find out, right? Get thee to http://imagination-institute.org/and see what’s up. And if you get the chance, c’mon back here and let us know whatcha think.
Cuz no way can we imagine what’s gonna happen at this place next.
