[ TBP ] The Fiction of Relationship


The minute I found myself typing the phrase in a distinguished dictionary service, it struck me: I am doing it all wrong. “Define: relationship” I wrote; all I remember from that point onward is a pure need to replace the internet browser’s window with a blank sheet of digital paper. 

I felt it to my mental bone: little can epistemology do in providing with a definition to “relationship” (other than informing me that it’s a twelve-letter noun), in the same way that dictionaries could prove inadequate in covering the multiple aspects of “fiction”.

And it’s this incessant frenzy of our era, urging us to accumulate no more than mere facts and figures, which drove me to hand-pick a direction so irrelevant to begin with: one cannot simply explore terms mentally, unless one allows his emotions to get deeply involved. 

Unless I have actually felt (or am willing to feel) the true dimensions of “relationship”, I am doomed to mentally suffer my way through social self-consciousness; and if I do not refrain from urges forcing me to limit my perspectives to mere paradox or post-modern criticism, I am in no position to distinguish all aspects of “fiction”. 

That said, there's a chance I might see more clearly now:
The “Fiction of Relationship” is not a controversy.
It’s not a principle either.

For all I know, it could be a creative perspective under a humanized form, exhausted by its suffering journey to incarnation, seeking for a sanatorium and a chance to re-invent itself.
It’s a seed I am willing to take in; how it flourishes remains to be seen…
