    One normally encounters the word as the adjective phantasmagorical which is often used as a synonym of fantastic.

    According to Mirriam-Webster phantasmagoria is a noun meaning...

    1 : an exhibition or display of optical effects and illusions
    2 a : a constantly shifting complex succession of things seen or imagined b : a scene that constantly changes
    3 : a bizarre or fantastic combination, collection, or assemblage

    It's also a really cool poem about a ghost, by Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass).
    "I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."
