They see and hear in the “mind’s eye and ear” that which is hidden from the sight and hearing of ordinary people. Their imagination takes the shape of an extraordinary revelation (a Western notion) or a profound insight (an Eastern notion). So powerful is this mode of imaginative thinking that the thinker’s mind soars in time and apace, moves beyond reason, visualizes and generates ideas, alters the course of events, and creates or invents another order of existence or reality beyond this life.

Creative religious individuals are possessed and haunted by fixed and besetting images that are ascribed either to an internal source known as insight, awareness, or consciousness (an Eastern notion) or to an external source known as revelation (a Western notion).

آن‌ها با چشم و گوش ذهن خود،‌ چیزی را می‌بینند و می‌شنوند که از سمع و نظر مردم عادی پنهان است. قوهٔ تخیل آن‌ها به شکل یک مکاشفه فوق‌العاده (در نگاه غربی) یا یک بصیرت عمیق (در نگاه شرقی) در می‌آید. این شیوهٔ تفکر خلاق به قدری قدرتمند است که ذهن متفکر زمان و مکان را در می‌نوردد و از مرز عقل عبور می‌کند، تصویرسازی و خلق فکر می‌کند، مسیر رویدادها را دگرگون می‌کند و نظام دیگری از وجود می‌آفریند یا حقیقت دیگری فراسوی این حیات ابداع می‌کند.

دین‌داران خلاق، تحت تأثیر و در معرض خطور پی‌درپی پندارهایی هستند که به یک منبع درونی موسوم به بصیرت، آگاهی یا خودآگاهی (در نگاه شرقی) یا به یک منبع بیرونی به نام وحی منسوب است.
