Avoiding Inner Tragedies

If a life tragedy is dragged inside, it almost loses its main feature of presenting itself as a decline from a past upright position.

To move a tragedy inside means to restrain the spatial area which is necessary for its development. That area is normally occupied by discourses which describe the tragedy, since the words describing it need to move from speakers to hearers in a spatial frame. It is a frame sufficiently broad for recording the collapse of those who are affected by tragedy, since any visible event occurs in the area of the large public opinion.

If we do not hastily conceive consciousness as a spiritual dimension of man, then we can see that the first contribution of the dragging a sufferance inside is the restriction applied to its extension. Given the conspicuous fact that the consciousness is confined to the limited area of our body, the tragedy has limited possibilities of developing as a passage from a state to another. The solitary individual has not sufficient space for making the comparison between the two states. Because no consciousness has the width of the public opinion which is eventually supported by a large number of bodies.

Therefore, many try to remake the absent public opinion by monologues or imaginary dialogues which imitate it. Such common attempt of not letting the tragedy to be an inner and thus a smaller problem is only partly justified by the strange appetite for tragedies. Mainly, it is caused by the fear of recognizing that a life tragedy does not really have a wide echo of our collapse. It rather inscribes itself along with our great achievements in the mute and meaningless course of our physical lives.
