A heterocosmic creator cannot organize the informational thread of a text in the same way as can the creator of simulacra. The reader’s attention must be drawn to similarities and differences between the world within the text and the primary world.

The heterocosmic creator must separate into two distinct parts the readers’ ready-made understanding of the way a world might work and must then compensate for the part ruled irrelevant by supplying a new understanding to take its place.
