    You have a weak imagination.

    No. He's thinking of "Flatland", which is an excellent book.

    How so ?

    To me imagination should be based on 3D physical objects , which exist . We are part of it and live within in it ; Our Universe .

    It is the mathematical concept , 2D that has wrongly taken over our thinking . Our imagination . 2D will never , ever be physical .

    Rules are kind of the antithesis of imagination.

    Depends on how realistic you make your fantasy world.

    1984 (Orwell) was all about rules.

    Yes

    Is it based on 3D physical world and life ?

    Or a 2D mathematical world ?

    3D

    Our survival depends on a 3D approach to understanding the Universe .

    Really.

    Rules about what one can and can't do are diametrically opposed to imagination, whose greatest strength lies in not having to follow rules.

    It's a 3D world allright and more prophetic than fantasy, IMO.

    In thinking about this question further...I wonder if living a life without any sense of purpose...if that might feel worse than death? Hmm.

    ETA, but we really won't ''feel'' death, so maybe this is all a moot point.
