Fantasy vs. Reality


Fantasy, according to the complete and unabridged Collins Dictionary, means: imagination unrestricted by reality.

Interestingly, the word fantasy was spelled with a ph, its origins in the word 'phantom'.


It is more and more often the case that individuals confuse (ph)fantasy with reality. Fantasies are dangerous as they are often unconcious and hence, have unconcious influence over our behaviours. It is for this reason that fantasies are destructive. They have the capacity to haunt our minds and intefere with our realites just as if they were phantoms.

  1. Hmmm... I wonder if we ever could live without fantasies - with either f or ph.
    A new world seems to be developing around us - I'm referring to the newest tools of communication.
    See itwitting on twitter and give it a thought.
