One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Rashômon

What is the real reality? And how do its actors tell it? Typically from a non-transcendent narrative.

It is transmitted as a fable in which they, the innocent heroes, are forced to do battle with hideous evil that victimizes them. Their solemn faith in the kind justice of the universe helps them prevail against atrocities and slay the beast.

They are certain they are not the beasts. They are angelic underdogs and idealized forms with pure motives.

They don't create the situations that cause their misery. They are somehow pulled into all disaster against their will by some external wicked force.

To be believed, they must invent a mysterious world that doesn't exist and convince listeners about mystical forces, projected motives, and a complex string of magical cause and effect. Without those, the phony explanation can't begin.

And if you laugh at the absurd props and victim ideology, preferring instead to use the ordinary relations observable and known in the actual world, the banality of this dishonorable tale reveals itself plainly.
