"But there is no reason why I should not imagine, and believe in, an afterlife of pleasure and ease floating among the stars and planets if I wish. Sounds nice doesn't it, but alas, I just made it up!" Ellis says.

What's the difference between imagining, dreaming of and believing in possibilities, and making them up? Isn't that what artists and inventors all do? They imagine things, dream about them, they make them up, and then make them.

Sometimes what they imagine is irrational and they do not evolve into anything worthwhile. Well and good! Sometimes they turn out even better than they imagined. Which is very good!!!
