Interview, Part 3 - FIRE, the Hunger

What do you mean by the premise; and how does it work with the plot?

Premise is how the stories are organized to offer the assumption, speculation, belief that is theorize and assume to be proven or disapproved like a scientific hypothesis. These stories or metaphors are to prove FIRE has an appetite that goes beyond what human’s imagine.

The warning came from god Kaang,”If humans get their hands on FIRE, there will be no harmony only fear and horror among the animals with the humans.” Then I organized the stories to prove Kaang’s warning. First, the legend of Goddess Pele’s volcanic anger and erupts and that gods hold ignitable FIRE in their volcanoes to make precious jewelry, Hephaestus. The humans desire to own FIRE, which is also fueled by their hypnotic enchantment with FIRE’s power, given to them by God Prometheus. Although, the animals seek the warmth and light, they understand the horrors of FIRE. The humans are beguiled by FIRE and finally steal FIRE without understanding the risks and costs they carry with FIRE’s hunger.
