To write something completely disconnected from the human experience would alienate the readers. I would say that these stories would mostly be told through discription of what they could comprend like maybe the movement of color. I beleive that fact can indeed be stranger then fiction, and that one day our dreams will no longer need us.

Reality is what is real regardless if we understand it or not. Anything could happen

Imagination is where we often create situations, but as their creators we always have understanding of those events. Often the world in books make a lot more sense then the one we live in. Only stuff we want to happen occurs

Absolutely

No, think both ways, a person's reality can be constrained by lack of imagination and a person's imagination can be constrined by lack of reality (think experience etc)

I am not saying that a "Haven" is what many people believe to be: peace, calm, positive vibes. It can be the quite opposite (going to my previous discussion) like darkness, pain, etc.

Take The Phantom of Opera as a popular example. His imagination, his fantasy, his haven is surrounded in the likes of Darkness.

@JnAkers: From the way I understand your last statements, it's like saying "Our Imagination can be our Reality." So, I therefore conclude my belief that our self-expression and fantasies can take you a long way of life. << my self-philosophy of life. lol
