Story is the Nature of Reality

I have this great theory that Story is the nature of reality. I have been posting up quotations that seem to help prove this theory on my commonplace book blog, Thoughtful Cacophony. I have been writing entries on this theory here every week as well. I call this feature, Storied Thursdays.

I have chapters listed on the side bar of both of my blogs. I hope to keep this series up for a while longer. There is just so many ways to tackle this concept and thousands of examples to use. It’s a bit overwhelming actually.

I want to thank everyone who has commented on this series so far. You have definitely helped me to explore this topic even further.

It’s a strange theory to have. How can everything be Story? It seems to be nonsense at first glance. But the more I look into it, the more I am convinced. It just makes so much sense on so many different levels.

The moment I came to the realization that everything is Story, it was like an epiphany. I knew deep down in my heart that it was true. I couldn’t explain why. I tried to explain it to a few people and while they often entertained my ramblings, they went away unconvinced. I couldn’t blame them, it was something that I felt and truly believed but explaining it was a completely different beast.

I’m still not sure that I have explained it well enough here but I am trying. And I will continue to try. I think this theory needs a lot of exploration. It could be a full-time dissertation. If I had the time to go back to school and earn my Masters of English, that is exactly what I would do. For now though, this is just a hobby of mine and it’s great to have you along for the ride.

One response to “Story is the Nature of Reality”

  1. I’ve always turned the little things in life into stories. Especially when I would write home to my parents or friends when I was far away from them. So I agree. Life is a story. No arguments from here!
