  1. Because imagination and imagination are our inherent property. It's something that makes us human. Not appendicitis, in short.

    Oh, swear that you believe in a fable, that you will only be true to fiction! “at Nabokov's Gift.

    This is very serious, it can be (in a sense) a life program.

    Science fiction, fairy tales and happy endings are different things, of course. Differently constructed tall tales. But the notorious “reality” in which we “live” is just as much a fiction as any other.

    We are allowed to see the possibility of different “realities”. And make a choice.

  2. Because we rarely meet all this in life. The more boring life is, the more you want to be carried away in a fairy tale at least mentally. The scarier life is, the less you want to catch up with fear through books and movies (this is about happy endings).

    Preston Sturges ' wonderful film Sullivan's Journey (1941) was shot on this topic, in which a Hollywood director who made a fortune in stupid comedies decides that it's time for him to take up real art and shoot about what people really live by, about their hardships and sufferings. And since he doesn't know anything about it, he decides to go to this very people and join the life of ordinary people. All this brings him much more misery and suffering than he himself expected: in the end, without money and documents, he ends up in hard labor, working every day in a quarry, and is about to die of despair. And then one day the convicts are brought a movie-a Disney cartoon. And the whole penal servitude laughs, and the director-along with them. When (of course) there is a happy ending and the main character returns to his former place, he decides that the real people are much more useful from what he shot all his life… that is, from stupid comedies.
