|CHARACTER DIAGRAM OF "ROMEO AND JULIET"|
Each of us is the main character and the star in a novel called My Life where the following rules apply:
(a) We are present in everything that happens to us from the introduction to the conclusion (birth to death).
(b) We have a single point of view: our own.
(c) We have no choice as to our physical characteristics, the country we are born in, our parents or our up-bringing and hence to what we are when we start out.
(d) Our reaction to outside stimulation is mostly controlled by our subconscious so we don't know how we will react to new stimulation until it actually happens.
(e) We strive to be the best we can be and do the best we can for ourselves and perhaps our close ones.
(f) Our character does not change much. The amount of change we are capable of largely depends on our experiences and our character.
In a novel, life's principles are repeated.
