Good question! Technically speaking, the imaginary world is heaven…right now. Therefore, the real world is daily life. However, the two worlds are very close together, and soon they will swap categories. That is to say, soon, Gimpel will be in heaven, and it will be real, while the world of daily life will only be imaginary.
