Human beings are driven by illusions. You can call it desire, drive, whatever, the fact is that illusion is the term for a space of possibility. You know something doesn't exist, but you can make it possible. I would never say this in the platonic or classical, ontological sense, which distinguishes between reality and possibility. I say the possible is inscribed in the real. Wittgenstein said, the world is what exists. Not true. The world is much more, it's what does not exist. The room of possibility is much greater than the room of what exists. What exists is more than we can think. What we can formalize in language is less than what we can think. Normally people think you can describe something completely. Actually we can think much more than what we can describe with language. But what exists in nature is much more than what we can think. Only slowly are we approaching it. So in that sense, the world is a continuum of the possible, which is not closed.
