Imagine how boring the world would be if no one was open minded!

Some people say "There's no such things as ghosts. It's a product of your imagination". You'll never know if you don't open your mind to the possibility. People use to think that the world was flat. Many people thought that creative people, like Sir Issac Newton (discovered the principle of gravity) and Orville and Wilbur Wright (builders and pilot of the first airplane to fly) were crazy. Some people scoffed at Thomas Edison's lightbulb, saying it would never replace oil lamps. Gene Roddenbury, creator of the "Star Trek" television show, envisioned gizmos (props) including one that resembles modern conveniences like the cellular flip phone. History is full of stories like these. Our modern life is a result of imagination, creativity and ability to think "outside of the box". Imagine how much more interesting life would be when you open yourself to a world of wonder and infinite possibilities.

Yes you are correct. I really appreciate your thinking and people should have these type of thinking. It's just little sad that some people have the bad habit of commenting on others and making atmosphere negative.

@optimisticbeauty ~I think that being positive, free thinking, "glass half full" kind of people is better for your mind and body. To me, stress and negativity threatens your health and well being.

@optimisticbeauty ~Stress can cause a great deal of problems, including headaches, sleeplessness, anxiety, to name a few. Stress can also cause ulcers and contribute to high blood pressure.

@nomus24g ~How true. In "Star Wars" 5, "The Empire Strikes Back", Obi-Wan Kenobi spoke to Luke of the concept of truth, sharing that truth is dependent on a person's "point of view".

Sometimes it is difficult to explain things up if people are narrow minded.
