Fiction. is the form of any narrative or informative work that deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not factual, but rather, imaginary—that is, invented by the author. Although fiction describes a major branch of literary work, it may also refer to theatrical, cinematic or musical work. Fiction contrasts with non-fiction, which deals exclusively with factual (or, at least, assumed factual) events, descriptions, observations, etc. (e.g., biographies, histories), according to my best friend, Wikipedia.
Fiction and truth in my opinion needs to co-exist hand in hand and not as enemies, because too much of the truth can be boring, and too much fiction will give people the impression that you are insane. A good balance of both these elements are like yin and yang, because fiction makes things interesting and truth stops it from being “too” interesting, to the point where it is unbelievable.
The best example of Fiction at work is in books. There is a genre called fiction, yes, and there is a very good reason for that. Fiction is not factual, and your imagination plays a big part of this world. Books are just pages and pages of words.. but your mind is able to translate those words into images and moving pictures.. THAT is what fiction is about.
What about truth? Truth can be interesting as well, i mean for example, just look at the “X File’s” Tagline, “The TRUTH is out there”. It just oozes of mystery and for avid die hard fans; could possibly even generate the urge to go out and look for that truth regarding alien existence. Truth also plays a part in how a person communicates, Generally a truthful person is much better to be around with than a outright liar; Truth just makes life that little more pleasant, not to say i haven’t lied before. With that being said a conclusion on truth is that it is the safe way to go, and Fiction pumps the adrenaline; lying is a type of fiction as well. 🙂
