(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer and inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.
Imagination sets new precedents by informing the subconscious of our revised desires.
It is important to remember that the subconscious makes no distinction with regards to the quality of our directed attention (imagination). This is the job of the conscious mind.
(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.
