The Philosopher's Stone

It is most apposite, not to say synchronistic, that the first book in the Harry Potter series is called The Philosopher's Stone

As I noted in my Calvin and Hobbes post, the famed alchemist's ideal of the philosopher's stone, the so-called elixir of life, is nothing other than imagination.

And no one to my knowledge has reproached J.K. Rowling with a lack of imagination.
