Imagination: The door to identity

Nicola Clayton discusses why we make use of memory and imagination to define multiple realities.

Re-living memories and imagining future scenarios lies at the heart of
humanity. The very nature of imagination impedes and disorientates memories,
and diversifies reality. Nicola Clayton discusses why we make use of this to
define multiple realities, coexisting side by side and questions whether we are
unique among the animal kingdom in travelling mentally in time?
