Reading only books about real things

Many of my friends think that reading only books about real things is better for than reading unrealistic books such as novels. However, I strongly believe that reading unrealistic books is more beneficial for the following reasons.

First of all, people can improve their imagination skills by reading unrealistic books. For example, when I worked for a large publishing company as a editor, my works were not funny. I always checked the draft and found some grammar mistakes. tasks were so boring that I wanted to change my career as soon as possible. However, after reading a novel, which was written about artificial intelligence, I came up with the way that made my works more comfortable. This novels said that AI could learn all data about human error and it was able to find mistakes and correct them automatically in 2050. This book inspired me and every day after my job, I calculated the number of mistakes and analyzed why writers made mistakes and which points they were easy to make mistakes on. I continued that tasks about a year and tried to have AI learn the data about writers 7 mistakes. As a result, this AI, named Kogy, could check and correct mistakes and I did not need boring tasks and spend more time to write some article. If I had not read a novel, I could not have been beyond imagination and come up with using AI. This example clearly shows that by reading unrealistic books, people can grow their imagination skills and invent something new.

In addition, anyone cannot understand what is true what is real. As I said above, quality of artificial intelligence and author latest technology is advancing now, so it is so easy to make some fake photographs and movies. For instance, when I edited a science book and then used some photos which were evidences of some arguments in the article, I found some strange points of these photos. I asked my co-workers to analyze these photos, and then they were produced by combining two different photographs. In my opinion, it was so difficult to find these strange points for ordinary people. Therefore, you cannot understand what is truth.

In conclusion, I definitely agree with the idea that reading unrealistic books is so important.
