The imagery is not confined to just cause and effect or to natural laws. I can imagine puppies, with capes, flying around my house like little supermen and little superwomen. I suppose, all the components of this imaginary image could have been seen previously in reality; puppies, capes and flying. However, these items have been assembled in a way that could not have been seen by me, since it is not practical and violates natural laws.
I think I can imagine faster than the apparent "now"
The imagination has a connected to free will. The imagination is the underlying matrix of free will, since this example shows it is possible to imagine things that can transcend natural laws. They may be viable or not, with our ego consciousness, capable of seeing an imaginary path that allows it to transcend natural laws. The imagination allowed civilization to form and appears to be relatively new in terms of collective human behavior. It may have taken imagination to make the first stone tools, but after that it can all be done by copying visual reality. Not much imagination was used until civilization forms. Then it becomes more wide spread.
