In talking about the art, it is often hear so-called "antecedency of themes" criti- cism, which means the creators had an abstract idea first, then design the content in line with this concept, and therefore the lack of specific and real life experience. I do not know why "antecedency of themes " would exclude emotion.
I consider that man is blessed with "antecedency of themes", because they can be indomitable toward a clear goal. Instead, we often treat"meta-theme" as a suffering from, only to be recalled as a thing of the past life angle to interpret the various self-deception. And more often, we are caught in an "Untitled" chaotic situation. This is the ordinary situation of life.
