I was reading an article a few days again and I came across the word ENVISAGE. It’s not that difficult of a word. Take a look at the definition below.
verb [ trans. ]
contemplate or conceive of as a possibility or a desirable future event : the Rome Treaty envisaged free movement across frontiers.
• form a mental picture of (something not yet existing or known) : he knew what he liked but had difficulty envisaging it.
