You have many rooms in your mind. A room of joy, another of grumpiness, a happy room, a room in which you dream and imagine things, and a room in which you create things and form ideas. You cannot be in two rooms at the same time – you cannot be joyous and grumpy together, and you cannot be in your creative room when you are having an argument with someone. They just don’t mix.
You also have both a carnal mind and an enlightened mind, and here again, you cannot be in both minds at the same time. You cannot be having an argument with another carnal tongue and its mind and be in the room of enlightened joy in your own mind at the same time. They just don’t mix.
So, what does one do? Firstly, you need to understand that carnal tongues and ears are senders and receivers of memes, and that these memes are highly contagious. If one room in one mind transmits these memes via its tongue another room in another mind might receive the infection through its ears, and a quarrel erupts. Thus the second thing to do is to get out of the reception field of the carnal memes. Finally, once you have rediscovered your enlightened mind, get into that room of joy, receive the rapture and be amused that you are the director of your mind.
After all, you are the director of all INFORMATION in your mind. No one else can enter your mind unless you open your door, which is a good and easy thing to do if the other mind is full of joy.

I imagine stuff. Imagination is the seed of every innovation and the beginning of all knowledge. Every car, boat, bridge and plane originated in imagination. Knowledge or science or physics analyzing how imagined things work can only develop after conception of the imagined things in the minds of those who imagined them. Imagination is thus very important, even although it is simply a fragile indefinable egress of ideas. It is something that cannot be taught or learnt. You cannot get a Doctorate in Imagination from any university, yet universities would not exist without it.
Sir George Cayley philosophised about aircraft lift whilst still at school and later published his ideas in the Journal of Natural Philosophy. He then went on to become an engineer to pursue his dreams and to develop his aerofoil concepts. Thus every aircraft that has ever flown has done so because of the dream of a philosopher who later became a scientist to prove his philosophising and to promote the science that proved it. So please treasure philosophy, and if you are in physics, please do not treat it with derision.
Some imagination is fiction. On the other hand some postulates cannot be proved to be false. If they cannot be proven false they eventually become fact. This even applies to observations of nature - the theories of evolution and of relativity came out of mind but subsequently proven to the satisfaction of science and physics to be fact and not figment. It is not up to figment to provide statistics and data. That is the domain of the sciences. Thus philosophy comes first and science either proves or disproves it.
