The Power of Ideas

Since an idea is the result of familiar factors
 It’s not unreasonable to suggest that nothing is ever new
 And that elemental changes in circumstances
 As life, subject to time, continues to present different sets of events
 Enable novel notions

Thus, to be original
 Implies that one should apply fresh thinking
 By enquiring into established estimations
 In order to come upon divergent realisations

But to do so
 Creativity, imagination, and reasoning
 Should be brought to bear
 For the purposes of problem solving
 And if one happens to have a dream
 Then all meaning will be discoverable in the transformation of the vision into reality
 So that the need for satisfaction does not turn into a desire for power
