Realms, also called Dimensions, refers to the various locations that make up the hierarchical tiers of 'reality'. Each Realm is numbered and ranges from the 0th Dimension downwards. The most commonly referred to Realms are the Story Realm and the Writers' Realm within the Never-ending Story but other Realms have specific functions that will interact with the Story Realm.
