Imagine something – visualize anything you like. One enjoys having imaginary things or potential experiences floating about in the mind. But alas, we are never truly happy unless we are somehow able to bring this imaginary experience up (Up! Up! Up!) to a phenomenal level – to REALIZE our desires in some way.
So we cause them to occur; we do this by sharing our imaginings with others through conversation or by writing about them - by drawing them, building them or purchase them... sometimes even stealing them! We strive to make our imaginings REAL by giving them FORM in any way we can.
Why? Because we humans have an innate need for tangible evidence of our imaginary existence.
