In January 2017 I wrote on the greenYgrey site that I was on the road to Benedict Cumberbatch, due to arrive when I’m 60 . I am now in that dimension: 7 B.B.C.
Meanwhile, B.C. seems to be going in the other direction, becoming the greenYgreyish Grinch, including background design, and advocating naps as a way to stay sane, as I was then!
As reported on MSN.
I was going to add he’s different because he’s a parent to two children, but then I thought maybe it isn’t totally different, because the greenYgrey became
an important creation to me
Learners Cross Paths with Teachers
It’s probably all a coincidence, and I doubt Benedict Cumberbatch has even heard of me; I haven’t paid much attention to him, and nearly wrote Cumberpatch before checking it!
I was thinking about fictional characters earlier funnily enough, in a hypnagogic non-comedy way, and how we relate to them, people thinking they are vampires and wizards like the characters they read about. Most of us travel parallel with the characters, but some unfortunately cross the road into the fictional world and characters; which is okay if they are positive and harmless.
Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker
Once you learn more about fiction and philosophy you learn that those characteristics have been studied and written about immemorially, with most writers and readers sharing being more introvert than extrovert, because they take the time to write and read, so they are relating to the writers of Frankenstein and Dracula rather than the characters themselves.
I watched a documentary about Stephen King recently, and it said all his characters, many of whom are very negative indeed, are all extreme examples from his mind; not the majority controlling characteristics, but there all the same. Writing his fiction at the rate it did drove him to the edge of sanity, and drink and drug addiction.
I kept the greenYgrey trilogy light, and my consumption too,
it led me to name it coffilosophy, surviving the protagonist for you…
