Sane world lingers between Real & Surreal.


No living being can solely exist in real world. Without  surreal we would be insane, Sanity which we relish is often combination of real and surreal. It is said that even animals dream, every living being dreams which connects us with surreal. Think about movies, comics, cartoons  etc. they ‘re  all to some extent pushes our step towards imagination and fantasy. 

World famous comics, cartoons, movies, novels, stories, paintings decipher the route to imagination for us and help us to be sane. Dreams , as per scientific researches  plays a very vital part in keeping our brain healthy. In our dreams we often do the things which is just impossible in reality. It rejuvenates us, gives us alternatives to perceive the world. A person who dream less or don’t dream at all suffers from mental disorder.

A research by Wharton college came to conclusion after a long research that people prefer  fiction  novels  and movies over non-fiction. Think about awesome comic s about  superheroes(yes, they were comics first which was later adopted into cartoons & movies)spiderman,superman,batman,x-men,hulk and many more of them ,we like them although we know they are not real.They make us believe in themselves for sometimes and believe me this sort of things keep us sane. Overdose of surreal could bring disaster as well . We all watched disney cartoons and fairy tales from Talespin to Ducktales, bunch of ducks,bears and variety of animal talking,flying planes,accumulating infinite money but we just forgot that they are just bunch of animals wearing clothes walking on two legs,This is what fantasy is about and we say we are all sane.
