Life Upstages Art
Unfortunately, especially in any artistic endeavor that is anything approaching dystopian, the anti-mimesis put forth by Oscar Wilde in 1889, “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life,” is wrong. In those cases life doesn’t imitate art, it actively upstages it. 🙁
But, on what must be declared to pass as the bright side, it does provide strong evidence for the Divine. There must be at least one God, because no truly random universe could be so consistently pernicious.
