Imagination

Imagination is one of human kind’s greatest evolutionary gifts.

Imagination brought us electricity, flight, medical breakthroughs, technology, global communications, literature, music and all things which add immense value to our individual lives and society.  All the things and positive emotions:  love, happiness, sensuality, health, knowledge, wealth, freedom and peace should not be the heritage of the privileged few. Imagination will one day create the conditions to allow equal access to all the wonderful things  that man’s imagination and creativity has been able to conceive.

I have spent my life developing the gift of imagination. Growing up in isolation on a rural property in Australia in the 1950’s and 60’s allowed me to indulge in day dream and introspection.  I was a precocious reader and developed an early love for books and an insatiable appetite for knowledge.

I was rarely challenged, engaged or inspired by my teachers at school or university though my love for books and knowledge has never diminished. Technology excites me immensely as it not only contributes to organisational efficiencies, it enhances my access to knowledge resources, enables communication and  fuels my passion for learning and interacting with amazing people.

Though imbued with morality, integrity and a deep love of all living things, I was an early challenger of religious dogma and took to hiding very cunningly, if not dangerously, on a window ledge 3 stories above ground, to avoid early morning Mass at my Sydney boarding school.

In most childhood situations I was frequently an outsider and somehow “different”,  but I was an enthusiastic and conscientious participant  in sports, music, dance … all things sensual,  and especially mischief. Particularly when mischief afforded personal freedom!  The fortress like architecture and high sandstone walls of Rose Bay were easily circumvented and Sydney became my playground. One of my favourite past times at school was watching the boats coming and going on Sydney Harbour and the planes flying over head to destinations within my imagination.

These innate characteristics of imagination, sensuality, spirituality (unfettered by dogma and discrimination), a willingness to dare to attempt bold things, to question the conventions of society and to value personal freedom are the very things which have led to the conception of M’illumino.

I hope to inspire imagination, an ability to see beyond  horizons, boldness to challenge conventional thinking, and a passion for participation and achievement in everyone whom M’illumino’s communications might reach.  From powerful politicians and global corporate and organisational leaders to the least advantaged in society.

“Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world…you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one, I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will live as one.” Imagine, John Lennon
