And what scope is there for paradox in all this?
A question is: What is a metanarrative?
In true early 21st century style, Wikipedia comes to the rescue (beware Wikiworld of course). 'W' may not be true but it tends to reflect what a lot of people think. Which is, of course, not the same thing. But it presents us with a platform from which to jump off. Or a cliff to dive over.
‘A metanarrative in critical theory and particularly in postmodernism is a narrative about narratives of historical meaning, experience, or knowledge, which offers a society legitimation through the anticipated completion of a master idea.’
An online dictionary offers the following options. It’s a noun. We can fix it thus far at least.
1.a narrative account that experiments with or explores the idea of storytelling, often by drawing attention to its own artificiality.
"Don Quixote is a work of fiction but also a metanarrative"
2.an overarching account or interpretation of events and circumstances that provides a pattern or structure for people’s beliefs and gives meaning to their experiences.
"traditional religions provide stories that deliver a metanarrative about how we should live our lives"
And so, I think we can say that All Moments is One Moment is, indeed, a metanarrative. But what do I know, i only wrote it/lived it/dreamed it/ argued it... insofar as I am the author, and there are those who would suggest that the author has little claim to their narrative. I recently came across this opinion... (once the text is published the author has nothing to do with it) I will just say 68 and leave it at that.
