There are a number of resembling words just for one keyword. The significance of this keyword is so powerful that perhaps, none of the sciences & technologies disciplines could avoid its effect. This also proves a firm believe that all the sciences are connected at certain point or somehow at certain degree.
Imagination; one of the most beautiful attributes of a human being, gifted by nature. There exist a number of resonating and almost, coined words for this single keyword like, Virtualization, Visualization, Interpretation, Cognition, Conception, Intelligence, Idea, Invention, Knowledge and so on and so forth.
Though it looks like a single entity, yet it is a sequence of processes or a set of sub-stages. In Sciences, the imagination of a theory or experimental evidences are heavily dependent on the human mind. The data, whether be experimental or theoretical in terms of gedanken or equation, sketch a relative mapping into human mind. There comes the real beauty of human thinking; the power of imagination to explore and search for undiscovered understanding; the missing link of knowledge.
Most of the times, we come across the conclusion through a number of different aspects, even through a number of disciplines. This process is quite evident in terms of natural sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, even interdisciplinary sciences because the way of propagation and transition is the same for all. The data or information of central interests are generated and fed into human mind in terms of meta-data. This process of thinking; a phase of meta-cognition comes into play and brings about the stage for imagination. The imagination to bring power into your data, so that this visualized picture may be mapped into everyone’s mind beautifully and exactly.
People from different areas and personalities of centuries are in practice of the same; the power of imagination. Philosophers and Leaders like Socrates, Plato, Confucius, Aristotle, Gandhi, Laozi, Augustine, Avicenna, Maimonides, Averroes, Zhu Xi, Aquinas, Lincoln, Artists and Writers like Tolstoy, Premchand, Shakespeare, Leonardo, Thomas, Thinkers, Scientists and Teachers like Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Bentham, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Peirce, Nietzsche, Russell, Feynman, Einstein, Mendeleev, Darwin, and all others to whom I could not mention, have a basic commonality.

It depends on a human’s beauty of mind to convey the same imagination to be visualized by others. Most of the times, it’s not a science rather an art that can be learned not by heart but by passion and inquisitive mind. It is not an innate quality rather a trait which can be developed by attitude, eagerness and environment.
In this modern era, commercialization and industrialization have enhanced the significance of this very concept from its origin. New scientific discoveries and endeavors are day by day relying heavily on this fundamental core concept.
