"The Willing Suspension of Disbelief"?

As anyone who enjoys fictions knows, it is only too easy to immerse oneself in alternate worlds. The difficulty is not to suspend disbelief in them but contrarily consists in not completely losing ones belief in so-called reality. Because there is always something alluringly true about the reality of illusion that makes us want to become irreconcilable to that which is real.

There is danger in this way of thinking, yet this ability of multi-refractive reflection is the greatest chance of our self-initiated evolution.

Reality can be so mundane, what my imagination I would be undone!

My imagination isn't too well-integrated in the world, recently. I have to recalibrate it a bit, I feel...but you're right: with a vivid imagination even the most banal quotidian things and situations (not that I would know too much about those) can be inspiring and/or interpreted creatively so that one at least isn't bored out of ones mind...
