Just Imagine

I know I may be dating myself, but that is okay since great ideas are timeless. I began to think about the song “Imagine” by John Lennon. How many have really listened to the lyrics or read them? The main message is, have you comprehended them?

For the moment, let’s forgo the religious implications and concentrate on what it means to us. My interpretation, and you will have your own, is that there are no bounds to what one can imagine if you try. And in this world, if you imagine it, believe in it and yourself, you can achieve it.  So, by logic, there is nothing blocking u achieving what we want, except ourselves.

He goes on to say if I am a dreamer… Well, if you do not dream you do not progress and you are not truly alive. So, take some time to dream for yourself…what you want…what your heart desires. “but I’m not the only one”, conveys the notion that you cannot and should not downplay, criticize, or even limit another’s dreams just because you may not agree or you are so institutionalized in your prison.

I feel the hardest one for Westerners, especially in the USA, to grasp is, “Imagine no possessions”. Well, this is the basis of our society. We go to work to possess more things, for whatever motivation.  What if we, just for a few minutes, imagined no possessions. How liberating would that be? How much energy could we free up to dream, create, or just enjoy life?

If you want proof of this concept, think of the great entrepreneurs, inventors, and innovators throughout time. Did they allow what they experienced with their senses to limit what they could dream, and thus accomplish? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! For, by transcending the established ideas of the mundane and the followers they achieved greatness, not for themselves, but for humanity.

So, who is willing to join me in the Imagine space and accomplish their dreams?


Alan Fisher
Alan Fisher
A modern Da Vinci seems to be the most apt way to describe Alan Fisher, his work and life experiences. A lifelong learner, teacher, innovator and creator, Alan started his professional credentials by obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Mathematics with Honors and a minor in German. Biotech was the first professional working arena that Mr. Fisher pursued. Rising from manufacturing to eventually managing the Air Sampling Division, which taught Mr. Fisher early lessons about corporate communication, people and resource management, and dealing with difficult circumstances. Immunology was the next field in Alan’s sights. For fourteen years Alan conducted research in university, biotech, and pharma environments, eventually leading and consulting on many projects involving almost every system of the body and efforts to create new types of delivering novel therapies to patients, who years before would have had no hope. While spending a year in Sweden, working for a pharmaceutical company, he, in addition to his other duties, became the de facto writing editor and author for his Swedish co-researchers and even taught English to some of their family members. Essentially, medicine was in his DNA from childhood, growing up with allergies and respiratory issues, which he is currently working to solve, as well as having a mother who was a nurse for 40 years. Prowess with the computer and data analysis aspects of research led to his current career of Information Technology. True to Alan’s M.O. of finding niche areas and needs that have not been filled, he has in the past 15 years learned and mastered many different platforms from operating systems, databases, web authoring, and architecting total business solutions. All along, in science and IT, Alan has been recognized for his ability to communicate, especially in documentation and writing. Currently, Mr. Fisher is studying Data Science, where he plans to master Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. As an adjunct to all of his professional experiences and plans, Mr. Fisher enjoys writing on subjects including IT and his other passions of mathematics,
