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.
