Call it by what ever name, Creative Visualization, is based on and an ancient understanding that there is no greater power than the power of Thought.

Your comment regarding other fields and study reminded me of the Ebbinghaus "forgetting curve" (although I recall my textbook calling it the "memory curve"). I found this to be a great help with college testing.
The photographer Ansel Adams taught the concept of "pre-visualization" for the print while making the photograph as part of the creative process. I've found that the "visualization" of many things is better than the actual experience. This seems especially true with restaurants and my guitar playing.
