In the theme browser, at the elemental level, I can see that there are 64 elements attributable to characters (per throughline). I think I’m clear on the idea that those 64 elements as represented by characters need to be weaved into each of the four throughlines in the assigned combinations.
But other information I have received refers to turning four acts into six sequences, and getting those six sequences by comparing six variations. These comparisons might be of the variations closure, hope, dream and denial, for example.
I have a few questions about this:
1.These variations (“closure”, for example) aren’t attributes to a particular character in the theme browser. So, in those scenarios where they’re not attributed to a particular character, how am I supposed to determine which character represents “closure” for example? Do I need to visit a different tile?
2.If you look at the theme browswer, there is class, type, variation and element. Is it right that each throughline needs to include, independent of one another, 64 elements, 24 scenes (as represented by quads of four variations paired against each other in six ways)?
- Does the problem quad then need to be included in each throughline as an additional layer of information that pairs that quad of four elements in the six ways they can be paired against each other?
Note: This would seem to take this throughline to 94 independent pieces of information at this point (64 elements + 24 scenes + 6 combinations extracted from the pairings in the problem quad.
4.Also, in the theme browser, at the type level, a few words are included below the type and assigned asterisks. The main character concerns and the main character dividends, for example. Are these supposed to be addressed/introduced into the throughline additionally, and as a one off?
And likewise, where words are included below the variation headings. Such as MC issue asterisked below the “rationalisation” variation, for example?
- I also received this information: “So now we’ve broken this Throughline down to 24 Scenes. Last is Events. Within each Scene, you should have a Situation, an Activity, a Way of Thinking, and a Fixed Attitude Event. That brings us to 96 Events total”. I’m pretty foggy on this. Where do I locate what sort of four events I should be having per 24 scenes? I know Situation, Activity, Manipulation and Fixed Attitude are classes but I’m not seeing where I can go to identify what sort of situation, activity, manipulation and fixed attitude are to be the events included in every scene?
