This Surviving the World uses the quote from Picasso “Everything you can imagine is real”.
When I saw that I had just read this in the last day or two:
The thing that can be thought and that for the sake of which the thought exists is the same; for you cannot find thought without something that is, as to which it is uttered.*
Everything you can imagine is real.
You cannot find thought without something that is
*Parmenides (fifth century BC), quoted in A History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell, page 49
