Imagination Connoisseur, Terry Cooper, asks if it’s possible to achieve the “suspension of disbelief” without successfully establishing verisimilitude.

Hi Rob & IC’s,

Following on from video #212, I wondered if you could give me your definitioin of ‘suspension of disbelief’. Is it, as I believe it to be, the result of successfully establishing verisimilitude, or something else?

My thinking is that if you can’t establish the reality of a situation, then disbelief won’t be successfully suspended.

Anyway, that’s how I interpret it – do you think the same, or not?

Many thanks and frozen pineapple pizza,

Terry
