For what Freud states is that the ‘hereditary schema’ makes ‘normal’ experience contain a conditional element of structuring. Like the prohibition of incest (our ‘condition of possibility’) makes love relations within kinship a psychic impossibility. Imaginary forms of compensation result for representations that do not fit within schematized reality (so that when I do fall in love with my niece, fantasizing offers a way out of the conflict). Schemes by which we conceptualize reality do not merely follow senseimpression, but actually structure it.
A ‘fantasme’ is ‘an image set to work in the signifying structure’ (Lacan 2006: 532). It emphasizes both the product (image) and its symbolic production (signifying structure, the Other). So the use of the word fantasy is difficult and tricky. I use the word fantasy, the regular translation of both the German ‘Phantasie’ and the French ‘fantasme’. Nevertheless, I use it – consistent with its use in Kantian, Freudian, and Lacanian theory – with a special interest for its transcendental and unconscious functioning.
Imaginary forms of compensation result for representations that do not fit within schematized reality (so that when I do fall in love with my niece, fantasizing offers a way out of the conflict).

This is an interesting line of thought, especially for approaching the work of Lacan that considers human reality so much modelled, not by inherited biological factors, but by imaginary forms and transmissible symbolic structures.
