n. A detailed imaginary world, especially one created by a child.
n. a prolonged fantasy world invented by children; can have a definite geography and language and history
A paracosm is a detailed imaginary world created inside one's mind. This fantasy world may involve humans, animals, and things that exist in reality; or it may also contain entities that are entirely imaginary, alien, and otherworldly. Commonly having its own geography, history, and languages, the experience of such a paracosm is often developed during childhood and continues over a long period of time: months or even years.
Paracosm is the second studio album by American chillwave artist Washed Out, released on August 7, 2013 by Sub Pop. "It All Feels Right" was released as the album's lead single on June 11, 2013, and received positive reviews from critics. The album debuted at number twenty-one on the Billboard 200, selling 13,000 copies in its first week.
