We then watched Risto Jarva's documentary "Kaupungissa on tulevaisuus" (The city is the future): see article about it (in Finnish)
Finally we went through Italo Calvino's "Six memo's for the next millenium", especially "Visibility": "Where do images come from?" - do they "rain from above", godsent? Every story springs from one image, which is full of meanings and creates others, forming a field of analogies, contradictions, associations etc. A field that is not merely visible, but conceptual; leading to the conceptual development of a story. The mind of a poet, and a scientist at some point starts to work through images: this is the fastest way of combining and choosing something out of the infinite forms of possible and impossible. Imagination is some kind of electronic machine.
"Imagination is the repository of possibilities and assumptions, containing both that which has never been, and that which will never bee, but might have been."
