The stuff dreams are made of
I’ve always loved Science
Fiction and Fantasy. They fire the imagination and open the mind.
The best literature inspires a person to think and feel. It fires the passions.
The beauty of my favorite genres of literature is the lack of boundaries. The thinking can be way outside the box. Sometimes a good writer can take an idea, push it to its limits and we can see if it breaks or not. Utopias, dystopias, magical lands, technocracies, anarchy, theocracies -oh what fun it is to play.
In the center of everything is people. They might be seven feet tall insectoids, but they are still people. We can explore what it really means to be a sentient being. A good writer puts characters in fantastic worlds and the adventures begin. People are challenged, suffer, triumph, fail, endure, hate, love -the whole range of human experience.
It may be Frodo accepting a burden, or John Carter finding himself on a strange world. It could be Corwin of Amber, searching for lost memories and discovering who he really is. Then there’s young Mr. Potter, discovering a much larger world and his special place in it. The people are central to the stories. The strange and weird worlds and situations test and develop their character.
The reader is right there, along for the ride, thinking and feeling. It’s the best of virtual worlds. No technology has yet to equal the mass of gray matter between our ears, if only we’d turn it on. We may be sitting in a comfortable chair in good light, but we are really experiencing swinging a sword on Barsoom.
It is said that a mind stretched by new ideas never goes back to its original size. If that’s the case, we get quite the work out.
We may be accused of being dreamers, but dreamers bring the world into being. Without dreams we’d still be living in caves, freezing in the dark.
