THE SELF ABUZZ
One of my fav words is "bespeak". Bespeak means to indicate "as if". Bespeaking is an as-if language that chalks or marks out boundaries of things long before "things" ever actually appear. The image to keep upper most in mind in the word, "bespeak" is that of a finger pointing for in its Greek root is deik, meaning digit, like the forefinger. There is a Greek god in the word, "bespeak" too. You can read more about that divinity, the holy action of language and fantasy's humor shaping poetic mind in the presence of horror and dread by clicking here.
Poetic mind may express and does express a fantasy image representing interiority without the image having to have interiority or exteriority to express and/or give notice to its reality.
