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.
