Today, I give you this: J.J. Abrams on the Magic of Mystery.

Because it made me feel proud to be a writer.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."

If Einstein said it, it must be true. You think he'd be a fan of FRINGE?

I dunno. :P

The way I always understood that, was...Anyone can have knowledge, just go look it up in the library (or on Wikipedia!). However, in order to do something with that knowledge, to investigate, to create...you need imagination!

And mystery can inspire imagination. In fact, that's kind of the point. ;)

I had a discussion with someone the other day about the role obsession plays in the creative process.

Maybe it's more like "Knowledge + imagination + motivation = creation"
