People often (today) overlook the importance of a simple story. The stories we see described in Fairy Tales. Archetypal stories. Our guess is that’s because the story is not an adequate argument. Whoever invokes on “some kind of story” automatically loses credibility. Today’s intellectuals cannot read great works “merely as stories”, but their readings and translations are much more “important” and “more serious”.
In order to reclaim, or better yet re-recognize, the value and importance of the Story (in a logical sense), here are some of its characteristics. In honour of Umberto Eko, features will be listed in the form of a List, which has proven to be the most descriptive format for any lone-standing phenomenon.
- The story is everything that has a beginning, middle and end – 3 elements
- The story arises in the relations between the Beginning – Middle and Middle – End – 2 relations
- With the first definition of the Story in mind, we can also refer to the Cosmos, its origin, its expansion and its supposed end; Human life; One day; One Activity; One linguistic flow; One Figure; One phenomenon, etc.
- The story exists before, during and after every objective actualization – the story as an idea. Its ontological constitution is recognized in all semantic interpretations of the phenomenon across the past, present and future.
- The story does not explicitly have a phenomenal existence, otherwise, it would not be a story. Its ontological existence is only of an intellectual nature, therefore only of a human nature
- The story is always based on the One-Many-One matrix.
- The story serves as an impetus, idea, and motivation for any start. We perform more successfully if we have more stories that reflect the anticipated goal. After the action is over, the story of that action remains.
- When we are born, we are undivided. The subconscious and the conscious are equal. The first lingual one is slowly beginning to form. Ontological Carrier of the Story – I (Ego). With the formation of ego-consciousness, I (the first one) begins to separate from the external – the Second (many). As we grow, the Self becomes more and more the One, and the outside becomes more and more different and creates the Many (“Differentiation is Creation” by K.G. Jung). However, as we become more and more conscious, we begin to feel that this inner “one” is somehow made up of “many,” and the outward appearance of “many,” somehow tends to be “one”. We see that the genesis begins with the undivided (“I come from the undivided” – Christ from the Gospel of Thomas), ie technically begins with the One I, so it goes to the multitude, and we know that as the age comes again we return to the “children”, or naive view of the world, i.e. the One. one-many-one
- We remember our lives and define the status quo of consciousness, or identity, through stories that we constantly explain to ourselves. However, these processes are instantaneous and invisible to the rational mind, because the inner space is made up of different space-time restrictions then the outside world, ergo The story plays faster. The reason is as coherent as its Story.
