The human mind seems to be an unexhaustible source of ideas. The millions of stories written over the centuries, the inventions that have helped to significantly improve our lives, the astonishing works of art that have been painted, or sculpted, or built are the greatest testament to human imagination and creativity.
Some scientists say that our imagination is most active during childhood. Playing with toys seems to be beneficial for the development and flow of new ideas. But imagination gradually lessens with age. In fact, more often than not, the adults who are very artistic and creative are still children at heart.
But what about you? How imaginative are you? Find out by taking a look at this list of images, compiled by Viral Thread. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see them?
1. Under the sea
No, no, it’s just a dolphin, you naughty, dirty-minded reader! We wouldn’t show you pictures like that; there are special sites for that sort of thing…
2. A highly evolved specimen
Apparently, antelopes have evolved and now have two heads! Perhaps because this way they can detect predators lurking about more easily. Wait… that’s not a head; it’s a bird pulling the antelope’s ear! No wonder that antelope looks so done.
3. There’s something on your back!
What would you do if I told you that you have an octopus on your back? Panic? Yup, definitely. And running away won’t help you get away from it!
4. World’s greatest music festival
That looks like an epic party anyone would love to join in! Anyone who loves picking cotton with a combine harvester…
5. Decent exposure
At first glance it might seem like an indecent photo, but look again. Don’t let your imagination run that wild: it’s just his hand.
