Secondary Imagination
With Coleridge, Barfield takes secondary imagination to be "an echo of the former [primary imagination], co-existing with the conscious will, yet still . . . identical with [it] in the kind of its agency, and differing only in degree, and in the mode of its operation" (Chap. XIII of BL). Secondary imagination creates meaning.
