goal visualization in sports - imagination and reality?
in golf and in life, many people have told me to visualize what I wanted (e.g. where to put the golf ball) and I have done it through my imagination, telling me that I would have more success
clearly, for me, imagination/visualization showed to be crucial and had an important role in developing my golf and thinking skills
however, to what extend was it valid?
imagination generated emotion and reason so that I could improve
induction fallacy - there were times it did not make a difference
stories and imagination
when I was a child, stories raised from my imagination, far away from our reality. (you can use stories or even only bigger perspective)
My imagination was broad and I was able to accept different thoughts easily, because I had not yet proposed limits to my imagination
while I grew up, I started to put limits in my imagination, and this limited my perspectives of knowledge
how do I know that?
I have realized that things that now I considered "stupid" or "non-sense" I did not earlier. I recognized the abstract things as being equal to the concrete ones, and actually my mind was more focused in the abstract than in the concrete (I found it more entertaining)
nowadays, my perception of knowledge is more limited to the concrete things than before, and this limits how I perceive and imagine the world
step back - how do we know that our imagination/knowledge is limited through our thinking? why is it?
what also limited my imagination was implying the perceptions of "good" and "bad" into my thinking. these conceptions arose from the environment I was in, and therefore my imagination is biased/limited.
therefore, imagination is able to create or limit the perception of our knowledge through the limits that we impose them
how do we know that? TO what extend? can't this be only my perspective of this situation? the limitations are that this "fact" so to say, is already limited by what I think.

JKRowling imagination + emotion
the author created dementors in her book to try and explain, through her imagination, how she felt when she was depressed
imagination was in this case a mean for communicating her feelings
her feelings at that moment were something that could not be measured by science
this is the gap between diagnosed diseases and the person's feelings - they cant be exactly measured
limitations: imagination is personal and unique, therefore we may understand it wrong.
by limiting imagination, one may get to different conclusions of knowledge. to what extend can we limit imagination?

imagination vs interpretation
the great difference between both of them is that imagination does not need to be justified, while interpretations does
