Imaginative vision is the sensible representation of an object by the act of imagination alone, without the aid of the visual organ. Sometimes the subject is aware that the object exists only in his imagination, that it is a purely reproduced or composite image.
In natural imaginative vision the imagination is stirred to action solely by a natural agent, the will of the subject, an internal or an external force, but in supernatural imaginative vision an agent superior to man acts directly either on the imagination itself or on certain forces calculated to stir the imagination.
The faculty of imagining, or forming mental images or concepts for what is not actually present to the senses.

The product of imagining; a conception or mental creation, often a baseless or fanciful one.
The act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality. A creation of the mind; especially: an idealized or poetic creation.
