'narrative' tends to be extremely 'narrow'

No "thing" ever happens - except in stories.


  1. The narrative is a narrow constriction of attention onto "me and my story." Thanks for this post Tom.

  2. The words 'narrative' and 'narrow' look like they're related.

    Of course, a story (to be any good) HAS to be very selective in what it includes and how it links these "things" into a sequence.

    On the other hand, 'Non-duality' points to "Infinite Intemporality" which "transcends and includes" all apparent events.

  3. I like the contrast between "no thing" and "story." Although there is no opposite of non-duality, narrative/story seems to be an essential element of what creates the "illusion of duality"
