Disney Contemplative Interaction
Calling attention to a mystical dimension on the part of Disney comes relevant to an interpretation of his work within life’s dialectical context: the flight of creativity vs. the enchainment of survival, utility vs. fantasy. Not of just Disney’s work, but of what may revert to a mystical essence behind interactive processes in general. If the man who invented interaction with fantasy had a mystical drive, he was responding to a need that is common to us all, even though not all of us are aware of it. The unwillingness to accept randomness, not just in our particular lives, but in the universe as a whole, or the bitterness that result for those who accept it attest for the common mystical need referred to.
