Not all of us accept the Laws of Logic of Aristotle to be Absolute  Truth.  
Quantum and Astro Physics would quarrel with the excluded middle,  etc.  Logic 
may need to be re-defined/described.

Imagine or  understand?

One could imagine 2+2=4 without understanding it (just as one  can imagine 
many things, 
without understanding why it works.)

Can a  person imagine '2+2=5'? Very likely. Especially if the person happens 
to be the  
current occupant of the White House. Asides from that, there are many  
examples in which one 
can imagine something is true, yet it's logically  wrong (for example, most 
of  Christianity).
