history of the word:  The word, ‘phantasmagoria’, plays a great role in the world of theaters. “Phantasmagoria” is an old form of theater where the light was projected from behind the curtain creating this wonderful image (later on sequence of images when film was found) and along with the images, a normal theater would run on its next layers. Beautiful word for a beautiful creation of mind.
