Wisdom Through Imagination
This is a ever-expanding list of verses in the series Visions of Fantasophy.
Imagination is a powerful tool to gain new understanding. It can make us see into the unknown. By using fantasy we can uncover the hidden facts of life.
With this premise in mind I wrote a several hundred verses in which I link philosophical views to fantastical elements. I call these “Visions of Fantasophy”, expressing the idea that we’re able to gain wisdom through imagination.
At the end of this list you can read a verse describing it in more detail.
Let me take you on a journey through Existential Portals to find Mystic Landscapes, and collect Magical Artifacts to overcome Common-Sense-Defying Traps and Impossible Phenomena.
Elaboration: I created this list for you to easily explore from verse to verse. All hashtags within the poems will take you back here.
The links below represent the hashtags, not the titles of the poems. Where there is no link, the entry refers to a poem that is finished, but is as yet unpublished.
When a poem is published as exclusive content, or is reserved for the books, it is mentioned in brackets.

In the books, these Visions of Fantasophy will be intermixed with other verses, which do not have a specific hashtagable attribute within their content, but still have an insightful message linked to a metaphorical setting. I have labeled these with the hashtag # Insightful Illustrations. You can find a full list below.
Elaboration: Only the poems I have posted or scheduled to be posted are listed below. I have dozens of these, most of which I have reserved for the books only, due to the context of their message, their book specific nature or connection to one another. I didn’t see the point in listing them all, mostly because their numbers are ever growing.

VISIONS OF FANTASOPHY
The unknown must be imagined
Before it can be discovered.
It’s through fantasy new insights can be seen.
Certain facts require fiction
To be properly depicted.
Think in fairy tales and find out what they mean.
Only dream-like illustrations
Can translate the strange behavior
Of our psychological reality.
Wisdom through imagination;
What’s obscured can be uncovered
When perceived through visions of fantasophy.
A philosophical dreamer with a passion for self-reflection and contemplating life. He’s serious about helping people with the insights he gathered, but playful in the way he communicates his wisdom. He left a career as environmental engineer behind, in favor of becoming a personal development coach and thought-provoking writer.
