Tolkien's Subcreation potentially makes an objective difference to the real world

Over at the Notion Club Papers blog, I suggest that JRR Tolkien's term Subcreation was meant to imply that 'fantasy', for example world-building imagination relating to Fairie, could have effects that went beyond changing the content of Men's minds. In other words, that writing the Lord of the Rings (for example) could literally Change The World in a physical sense.
