What survival value has fantasy?

Is it just a sub-class of imagination allowing for example the planning
of catching a sabre toothed tiger without actually trying it, or is
it/has it some higher function?

If that is the case (maybe this is for another news group) why does it
have its own word to describe it?

Funny what we think of when we brush our teeth isn't it!
