The distinction between fact and fiction is hazier today than it has ever been. As corny as it may sound, a novel or movie about fictional characters can dramatically transform your life. It's a portal to another universe, a vacation from reality. We spend a significant portion of our lives engaged in books, films, plays, television programs, and other forms of fiction. We forget that those are created to make stories that have nothing to do with reality most of the time. As a result, it's not unexpected that fictional events might influence how you think during actual situations.

The sensation of peering into the brains of the characters might broaden our viewpoint and make us more accepting of differences. Sometimes the stories themselves have an impact on reality in surprising ways.

Pop culture is a lot of fun. It forces us to spend several hours absent from our families and friends. It constantly provides us with wonderful quotes to botch. And it instills us with outlandish ideas, such as these, which were carried out.
