My daughter asked me why imagination is more important than knowledge…

Whilst I have, at the time, tried to explain to her the concept using the “Star Trek” doors (initially pulled by people so they look like they open by themselves), last night, after hearing that David Bowie changed back into stardust we both watched

And then…

which made me pondered once again how beautiful human species is, with our amazing capacity to create myths, songs, and stories.

Rest in peace David Bowie, and thank you for reminding me over and over that art and storytelling are as important as science in creating our future.

Godspeed Major Tom
