Is imagination more important than knowledge?

Can you have one without the other?

Which came first the theory of the proof?
The question or the answer?

What comes after, leads from both?

@sometime sun,
:intentive:

[SIZE="3"]We can live with Both. Having to perceive with our Thoughts ("Imaginary" or Illustrations through viewing the perception of another person and/or people); implements the knowledge we have on a certain criteria that we are all claiming, stating, etc.

:deep-thought:

And with such dissections of perceptions (through "Imaginative" thinking to perceive what the subject is concerning about through Illustration of mind) and knowledge, we do attain a level of Wisdom. Hereafter, leading to having both Knowledge and Wisdom Do Co-Exists within a person.

I think the question comes first. Perhaps imagination is the cutting-edge of knowledge?

The question may come first but is not the answer already there waiting to be questioned.
We live by the proof even if we have not as yet come to question it.
Or even yet to know it exists even though by its answer we exist.

I am uncomfortable with the word stupidity, yet it does have definitions. Stupidity is the doing of foolish things to fill the gaps that exist from the recognition one never was allowed. All have been guilty of such antics. Wisdom is being cognitive of that fact. If one is not allowed to be re-cognitive they will seek others ways to find identity and attention even if there is nothing accomplished but a Pyrrhic victory. You are right Pepjin, the problem is "massive".

Imagination without knowledge is insanity; knowledge without imagination is brutishness.

[SIZE="4"]The Mass will always have it's affect. It is of no wonder we are surrounded by "Stupidity," mostly equating to ones that lacks perceptiveness also lacking comprehension. Thus I stated, "Person" because it is only Plausible for the very few.

Laughing Yes, Thee "Stupid" still emanates imaginative traits. However, others can use it to Implement their Knowledge. There is a difference.

Yea! The answer has the question wrapped up inside it.

So questions start from a previous answer... so to speak. I wondered about ancient Egypt and I found out there used to be more lakes and rivers there. So then I wondered about Ice Ages.

Is there an example of a question that didn't start that way?

I've been talking to my niece lately, and she's at the age where she speaks fully formed questions: "Why did you do that?" But I'm not sure she's old enough yet to fully understand the question the way I do. She can't "dissect" the question as Sid pointed out. At least I don't think so... maybe questions start out as gestures.

@sometime sun,
Is imagination more important than knowledge? What matters is relevance!
Medicine men may not be able to cure what takes surgical procedures, his forefathers didn't have much imagination of ineventing hightech thingies, but it takes great and correct knowledge in order to do a surgical procedure, there the imagination will only cause harm.

Can you have one without the other? Yes, but with them both you can achive much greater things.

Which came first the theory of the proof?
The question or the answer? Relevance? ..beware of getting lost in navel gazing.
