Future 'I Believe's--are stories/true myths/narratives?

Dear Gentles:           
The issue is the legitimacy of using things made by bad means.  For libertarians, the issue is roads, for instance.

This issue is very well handled by Theodore Sturgeon in this penny (plus shipping) selection of short stories, 'Sturgeon is Alive and Well'.  the story is 'the Man Who Learned Love,' aka 'Brownshoes.'

A hippie discovers free energy, and must DO something.  How does he get 'power to the people'?

I believe that narrative is a good way to do 'I believe,' or creeds.  In fact, that's the way it is being done, and God did give us stories, did He not?

This is an example:

Some could best understand GFE by being shown in a story how it applies to Heavens Above (Portalism), Earth Beneath (Perpertualism), and Waters Under the Earth (Planetism).  But those are distinctions and narratives for your grandchildren's grandchildren, who will have searched our discussions.

Godparents for Eldsters (search, Facebook and/or web) is an institution that helps vulnerable people.  Portalism takes them to a next world, Heaven, e. g., and is originally Christian. Perpetualism would apply to those who think that they can be healed of today’s death by tomorrow’s medicine. Cryonics, Kurzweil, etc. Planetism would be green burial, for example. Instead of a funeral, buy an acre of scrub land, have it cared for, and have yourself buried there. The GFEr institution keeps it maintained.

We can see this in those who are in the Potter world, and those who are in the Bilbo world.

Love in King Jesus,

New 'tell me a story' Charlie
PS: Compare ‘priming’ in ‘Blink’.
PPS: How be a hero? H.elp E.xplicitly R.econcile O.pposites? That's the question we are called to answer by the Prince of Peace. Someone WRITE this story. 2 Corinthians 3:2
