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 not only work hard to establish the relevance of some aspects of the readers’ preexistent stocks of knowledge into the text, but must work at least as hard to ensure that certain other aspects are definitively excluded. 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.
