Imaginary World (Defn.)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An imaginary world is a setting, place or event or scenario at variance with objective reality, ranging from the voluntary suspension of disbelief of fictional universes and the socially constructed consensus reality of the "Social Imaginary", to alternate realities resulting from disinformation, misinformation or imaginative speculation, and the subjective universe of altered states of consciousness, psychosis or dream sleep.

Imaginary worlds have been the subject of cosmological and philosophical speculation since ancient times, as well as being used for entertainment.
