HERE. BE AWED. AN IMPROVEMENT ON NIETZSCHE

—“If we hold that the function of mythic art’s (story, play, movie, etc) is to provide commensurable decidability across the spectrum of classes, then I think that tragedy is the only theme that represents the full spectrum of human experience.

Information can be transferred to slave, citizen, master and hero in a manner congruent with their class and the profile of experiences they have with the world.

That goes without saying that myth seeks to provide information that is meaningful—tragedy might be our only way to construct myth that is also truthful.”— James Augustus
