The Same, But Opposite?

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
