Religion (as phenomenon and societally always in plural) and for example Monarchy ameliorate truth with literary lifestyle and grandeur and fantasy.

And the inter-subjectively (and multiphrenely) communicated non-basic (less basic than the singularity of compositions of individual things) narratives. Narratives are/as more or less ontologically deep and epistemologically: subjectively intensely received/more or less strongly resembling and resounding in the different subjects (summarised for example as ‚characters‘).
* An individual person who in this story is an individually composed subjective consciousness-in-moments and a pluralistic & non-wholly reconstruction of sequences of moments/narrative combination of different ‚past moments‘.
