Paradox, in Stories

All stories are both true and false
True: dramatizing some aspects of reality
False: ignoring almost everything else.

Assertions can be both true and false
Logically, "this statement is false"
if false, must be true, and if true, false!

Any impulse, emotion, feeling, or action
is True in that it is an actual immediate experience
but False in that it denies all else.

Even meaning is paradoxical
True: implying some glimmering aspects
False: outshining its source and context.
