Future of narrative

Hypertextual continually returns to the theme of changing, transformation and role of narrative, perhaps in an attempt to draw the reader into questioning the future of narrative, specifically as it relates to new media.

Hypertextual wants to define narrative as giving a context in which we can explore -- and subsequently come closer to understanding through further illumination - web behaviors and the numerical condition. We believe that narrative is a method through which we can isolate scriptor's traits, project them beyond ourselves, and contextualize them in a medium which can be used to understand reading behaviors and cultural society.

Narrative under this description seems to accord very well with projectionist theories of religion, specifically Feuerbach. Ludwig Feuerbach, in his work, “The Essence of Christianity”, explains religion as man’s projecting his own humanity beyond himself into a transcendent reality in order to understand his own characteristically human experience.

Hypertextual works like this projection. An ideality. The text is projected in a transcendent ideality. And the author is identified with his own words.

"Madame Bovary, c'est moi !" used to say Gustave Flaubert !

“In Jesus Christ, there is no distance or separation between the medium and the message. It’s the one case where we can say that the medium and the message are fully one and the same.”

Marshall Mcluhan.
