    Kids of any age love to read fairy tales because the storyline never limits the possibility that anything could happen.


    Yes including death but the monkeys ( http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3204/01.html ) got it wrong, there is a lot more to it than just imagination, they mistake the messenger for the message as usual , and with help of " rational " folk effectively use these fairy tales for the very opposite purpose of their original intention.

    Its funny how though tv has blurred that reality for most now with limiting beliefs i.e. by reinforcing and promoting the same crap and effectively brain washing them into delusional ideas about " this " reality i.e. their symbolic messages of health etc

    And then they need use the very same concepts to create a case of science wich limits peoples beliefs even further lol

    And once their brainwashed then brainwash them further into buying the lifestyle or products they need to save.

    Quite ironic how these fairytales magic has now been reduced to safe level so everyone can feel safe about themselves again.

    I think Death has the final answer on that but give how its become the antagonist and micast as everything else by the monkeys i.e. the good points of it , instead of bad ( or bigger picture ) I doubt things are likely to change.

    Heaven awaits us all , actually its already here.

    Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post. Unfortunately I couldn't get the video link to work so please bare with me if it contained something important to your argument, however, I think I got the gist of it from your post.

    I don't think science understands imagination properly yet. They tend to wrap it in adult concepts but children have very different minds and abilities that we, as adults, can lose and mostly do.

    I very much agree with most of your post and would like to add my own observations:

    Children like fairy tales and cartoons specifically because they have no limits or boundaries they observe in the real world. This gives them two very important tools for figuring out the real world they inhabit: a refreshing break from the work needed to figure the world out, and a contrast to which they can compare reality.

    I also agree that children are brainwashed by the media. I watched as my own child viewed show after show that instructed her to "use her imagination." Eventually I had to stop her from watching such nonsense. I remember my childhood very well and I never needed to "use" my imagination. It was always on and it was an important tool for me. I eventually learned to use it which destroyed my imaginative powers. I had to relearn how to just let it run freely of my conscious mind.

    Therein, I suspect, is how media manipulates children; by turning their imagination off and thereby interjecting their own imagined concepts of reality. The effect is very similar to what you describe and I agree with you completely that this is occurring.
