Whether it exists

Posted on December 1, 2009


I can shoot an imaginary deer.

I can imagine shooting an imaginary deer.

I can also imagine shooting a real deer.

I can watch an imaginary deer being shot.

I can see a real deer being really shot.

… So is it only with the last that the question of existence arises?  Is existence irrelevant to imagination?

That is, is existence something that we have to be NOT concerned with, with imaginary things?
