A phantasy is an illusion

Venerable John Climacus ~ The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Step 3 ~ On Exile

¶26. A dream is a movement of the mind while the body is at rest. A phantasy is an illusion of the eyes when the intellect is asleep. A phantasy is an ecstasy of the mind when the body is awake. A phantasy is a vision of something which does not exist in reality.
