Answer :

Author while talking about pre-scientific imagination mentioned that:

I have often made the point that true science fiction is a creature of the last two centuries. Science fiction cannot exist as a picture of the future unless, and until, people get the idea that it is science and technology that produce the future

Naturally, no one could possibly get that idea until the rate of scientific and technological change became great enough to be noticed by people in the course of their lifetime. Yet there must have been something that came before science fiction, something that was not science fiction and yet filled the same emotional needs.

There was the notion that the Universe is full of superstitious things like some sort of energy or super human was the leader of universe who plays this universe.

The author’s attitude towards the pre-scientific imagination and the tone he adopts while talking about it is “Absurd” which is unusual as pre-scientific imaginations are not usual and logical because it was not evident.
