The Panda Bear on Reality vs. Fantasy

The Panda Bear thinks we live in a fact oriented world.   Witness  the success of  "Reality" TV(even though they say people act differently in front of the camera) and that the market for nonfiction books is superior to the market for fiction(even though some best-selling nonfiction books turn out to be works of fiction).   The Panda Bear thinks may humans should just face it-reality is hard to take untouched.

The Panda Bear proudly salutes the human imagination.   She found this interesting quote:

Dreams are extremely important. You can't do it unless you imagine it.~George Lucas

The Panda Bear spent the first half of her life trying to become more realistic.   She felt disappointed that the reality was not up to the dream.  However, now Panda Bear can find reality a bit dreary.   The economy is bad and the US is at war.    She feels a need for some escapism.

The Panda Bear has also come to the conclusion the dreams and fantasies can enrich reality.   Dreams can inspire and motivate us.  It can give us a vision and a goal for the future.    The Panda Bear confesses that some of the stupid television shows of her childhood did shape her life goals sometimes in a positive way and exposed her to new ways of thinking.
