imagine

Here is my best explanation:

'think' is the definition.

('imagine' can be a synonym of 'think')

'i'm home in time' is the subsidiary indication.

'home' becomes 'in' ('he's home' can mean 'he's in').

'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'time' becomes 'age' (age is a kind of time).

'in' inserted within 'age' is 'agine'.

'im'+'agine'='imagine'
