We all may be players on the world stage, nevertheless the question remains why we show the psychological responses to the happenings depicted from the fiction, whether in print or visual demonstration, as in real life? Much like dreams our imaginations get introduced to us over the mental screen as though we had been watching movies or television. And just as in dreams the real world becomes supplanted by the virtual world even though we’re fully awake. That planet has great resemblance to the real one and everything happening in it appears real due to something shifting in our cognition faculty. However, the mechanism that triggers our emotional responses stays unchanged and therefore we react to the fiction in the exact same way as in actual life.
Here we have some similarity with the digital reality of the contemporary computer technology, which is an artificial environment created by software. It’s introduced to the viewer in such a manner that the person temporarily suspends own belief pattern and accepts it as a real environment. In a way it isn’t different from the phenomenon of being hauled to the imagined world of fiction, except the computer doing the job is in mind and we have no clue regarding what is the software and who is your programmer.
This brings us to the cause of psychological reaction itself. In respect to fiction the most frequent emotions are likes and dislikes that may turn into their stronger types of hate and love. In real life we love or hate a person because of some attachment through kinship, friendship, or through indirect understanding of the individual. An individual cannot love or hate a person a person does not know in any way. Attachment can also be on other living beings, material things, and to imaginary things. We love or hate a story or even a notion. For an ordinary person it’s not possible to live unattached to things on the planet. If a person can get rid of attachment, one unites the rank of enlightened souls who are indeed rare. We carry our capacity and desire for affection even into the fanciful world of fiction. We see the characters that we come to understand as the narrative progresses, form our preferences, and respond in precisely the identical way like in real life except we cannot socialize together physically. But we do socialize with them in our minds and hearts from where the feelings come. The relative impact of description on your situation can be dramatic and cause issues of all varieties. We do recognize very well that your situation is vital and matters a great deal. That is really a lot when you think about it, so just the briefest instant to mention something. This is the type of content that men and women need to know about, and we have no problems stating that. Our last few items can really prove to be highly effective considering the overall.
The simple fact is that at a certain sense life itself is fiction. Like a story it’s a beginning, an end, and lot of stuff in between. We don’t know who writes this fiction will ever know. Thus we have an inborn affinity with fiction and cannot completely detach ourselves from it. And perhaps that’s why, while reading or viewing fiction we get lost subconsciously in the wonderland of imagination, but for that short period we operate exactly in precisely the same way as we want in the actual world of our understanding. In that sense fiction is just invented reality.
Theme is why fiction matters, because it is the quality that provides the narrative a universal appeal. Some say theme is exactly what the story is about, but that is too ephemeral a definition, which might get confused with all the idea or the plot.
Theme enriches and inspires the reader while saying something profound about the human condition. Theme is the abstract concept behind the story forming the story’s heart and soul which the exposition, dialogue, and action reflect every chance they get.
Theme isn’t the characters or the plot or the original idea that started the narrative. By way of instance, a writer may begin with the idea of exploring family connections between girls, but as his story progresses, his subject may appear as understanding and forgiveness between different generations of females. There are some topics on which it is very hard to write any kind of story.
Theme is implied, occasionally without the writer’s knowing of it at the start; nonetheless, more experienced writers usually work on their theme more difficult than any other part of the story as soon as they grab on to what it is they’re writing about.
In non-fiction, the author is advised to hone into his theme and start referring to it at the very first paragraph. In fiction, on the other hand, the theme usually flowers through the writing as the narrative progresses.
