Imagination is the critical point in developing of realistic intelligence (AI) systems. One way to approach imagination would be simulation of its properties and operations. We developed two models “Brain Network Hierarchy of Languages,” and “Semantical Holographic Calculus” and simulation system ScriptWriter that emulate the process of imagination through an automatic animation of English texts. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the model and present “ScriptWriter” system for simulation of the imagination.
