So Is Our Imagination Real Or Fake?

First of all if we define real to be "that which can have causual effect on any physical object/phenomena in the universe", then does our imagination not effect our actions sometimes?

If not for us older people... then how about the monster under the bed that frightens young children? Does he (monster) have causual effect in universe (upon children)?

Otherwise if we define "fake" to be "not real", then are the electrons that carry information pulses to visual cortex fake? I think not...

Do envisioned objects/beliefs have causual influence upon humans/animals, thereby obtaining real eletrical/chemical impulse manifestation? which can cause physical biomechanical response to mental stimuli?

Afterall... just because we can't see, feel, hear, smell, taste, somebody elses imagination... doesn't mean that THEY can't! Also note that we can't see, feel, hear, smell, taste, neutrinos, superstrings, ten-dimensions (or particle/anti-particle virtual pairs); but physics nonetheless gives credence to THEIR existence. Why not God?
