|I have a new website as of late 2012. The Nine Winds, at terrymcgarry.com, has updated b(ibl)iographical info, exclusive fiction, an active blog, and all kinds of new content, with most of the content here gradually making its way over there as well.|
Each of us lives in a continual cyberspace. Every memory, every conception of the world, every experiential moment, is a virtual reality. "Real" reality, in progress, is unexamined--experienced on a direct level that can be analyzed only once it becomes a memory. Analyzing reality as you live it bounces you out of it as effectively as a "dear reader" aside bounces you out of a fictional narrative. Fiction compresses experiential cyberspace back into a mockup of realtime--including periodic trips to the lighthouse. But ultimately you're in the most intense virtual environment of all: your own head. Join the saints and poets. You're in good company.
