Just more mental wanderings I wanted to consider later. All of these are pulled from my comments. This time I crossed out the sections unimportant to the theme.
“Yes, I couldn’t agree more.
The essential advantage of any form of fiction is to allow the audience to extend beyond the parameters of their current reality, and regard with new eyes an evaluation of a potential reality existing beyond their own perceptions.
The themes and intentions the writer presents are seen, and were created, beyond the scope of the audience’s life. The meanings of the imagery and the action that tie the themes are all allowed to act seamlessly within the reader that accepts the suspension of disbelief. The reader then must accept the world as it unfolds; and it had better be captivating if the conveyance is to occur successfully. That is up to the writer from the start, but it is with the use of dissociative elements such as the nature of its fantastical or fictional devices,(or rather so very associated with the concept that it must be manufactured by fiction, as in science fiction)to appeal to the reader beyond the bias of their daily lives.
Suspension of the known reality is truly the real aim of any form of fiction.
Some forms replicate existing realities with vivid associative detail, to tie in the reader with aspects of known realism; and the more imaginative end of the fiction spectrum seeks to fabricate similarly vivid representations of concepts through instillment of belief in the writers carefully manufactured, compiled, and conceived, realities representation: the more imaginative the fiction (even within the realm of realism),the better.
