Fairytales are mental cultural realities.
Their structures and identities only exist in the consciousness
of a person, and reflect the paradigms that rule us as a whole.
In every day life
we move around and gather information relying on our senses,
after which the collected data travels to our brain
and gets "translated" in the frames
of existing knowledge and experience available to us at that moment.
Everything we see or know or experience is a result of a social package
and always an interpretation (!) of reality.
There are millions and millions of realities out there,
each and every one of them a construction
built in the patterns already set ahead by those who came before us.
It's what you know and choose to see
that builds your reality
that is uniquely your own.
