The Universe and Me

Really excited about this one, this week: The Curse of the Hegelian Dialectic.

Had a really strange “coincidence” this past month where two professional writers—one in film and television, and the other a novelist—both brought up this idea of the Hegelian Dialectic and how it can be used to structure a story. I ended up writing a response to one, and out of nowhere, the other brought it up in a separate context.

Very strange.

Knowing what I know about the structure of a story and how it relates to the composition of the mind it is modeling, I set about writing a response that explores the Holistic side of things.

Another strange “coincidence” as I just finished a series of articles on The Holistic Premise, in part, a foundation for the brand new feature I’m rolling out for Subtext this month…

…building a story strictly from Premise.

The Universe works in very strange ways.
