words2Paracosm [n]: A paracosm is a detailed imaginary world, or fantasy world, involving humans and/or animals, or perhaps even fantasy or alien creations. Commonly having its own geography, history, and language, it is an experience that is often developed during childhood and continues over a long period of time: months or even years.

Gillian spent quite a bit of time within a paracosm, speaking to imaginary friends and going to imaginary castles. If it hadn’t been so fascinating, Alex might have found it impossibly irritating.
