Title: Entelechy: A Selfish Bible
Author: Molnar, Christoffer
Abstract: ENTELECHY: A SELFISH BIBLEbyChristoffer MolnarABSTRACTAs entelechy denotes the absolute attainment of potential, Entelechy: A Selfish Bible seeks to examine what it means to become. Pursuing ideas of identity, relationship, and sacrifice, this collection of short stories and poems looks to discover what it is to be a being -- not only through its themes, but through its formal experimentation as well. Both the varied structures of each piece and the overall structure of the work -- a mimicry of the form of the Christian Bible -- seek the possibility of complete identity and fulfillment. In ranging from mythic recreations to choose your own adventures to unreal creatures to oft-recurring images (like the octopus) or lines, Entelechy embraces the multitudinous nature of an individual, and also humankind, by being both diverse and recurrent.
