Still didn't spell it properly...

No, you missed the point. I'm saying you don't need knowledge of something to imagine it. Referring back to the example of Otto Loewi, he knew what a jar, frog's heart, oscilloscope, etc... were individually. But, he didn't know stimulation of the vagus nerve would secrete chemicals, he imagined or dreamt it.

He imagined or dreamt of something he didn't actually knew existed. That is my point. Whether it actually came to be real or not is something different and for my point, doesn't matter. Perhaps it was my fault of choosing examples where things did come to be real that made the point somewhat difficult to understand.
