Fiction (in any medium) provides the illusion that we can choose the genre of our experience. We can’t completely and permanently escape from reality into fiction. Fiction is not an alternative reality. Reality is not just a different genre than any fiction, but a different medium. Fiction is an emulated program running within the operating system of reality.
