Imagine a paradigm for "narrative," "story" or "diegesis," which instead of anticipating closure, revolves around or negotiates itself in relation to a pre-existing, chorographic (as opposed to chronologic) concept of time. Events don't unfold. There is no causality. Time does not elapse, is not remembered. The elements of the story simply are, exist in relation to one another simultaneously.
You hear them resounding off of one another.
