     There are good biological reasons for accepting the fact that man is so constituted that he possesses an inner world of the imagination which is, different from, though connected to, the world of external reality.  It is the discrepancy between the two worlds which motivates creative imagination.  People who realize their creative potential are constantly bridging the gap between inner and outer.  They invest the external world with meaning because they disown neither the world's objectivity nor their own subjectivity.
