The Fable and the Truth

The best way to address universal truths is fable.

You can disarm the resistance of the audience and allow them to discuss and be open to themes that would seem very topical and very aggressive. It’s theater of the mind and a theater of the soul.

—Guillermo del Torro

If any universal truths are to be believed, it is through story that we can communicate with each other most effectively. The tale, the myth, the fable — no matter the medium — can cultivate an understanding between people. Religion can serve this function, and mostly does. But for those who have lost the taste for organized religion, the stories that we share in popular culture can fill that need though only to a point.

Find the stories that speak to you and understand the truth you want to share.
