This is a very true and sad point. At the end of my post, which apparently i
must apologize agian for,( it should be obvious I did not mean YOU, Damien,
were one who ignored or berated useless imagination as valueless( shit you
have a poem at every turn).

At the end of that same post, I isted Carl Sagan's Demon Haunted World, and
two books on creative thought... in it Sagan laments the layman's disjointed
relationship to science...
It is sad...
