The Past Isn t What It Was Given a choice between life and books my son you must choose books The gecko protagonist he was he believes previously human remembers his father s advice Fiction is the only refuge from a reality which is always painful It is the means of escape from a world in which we can never really be at home the gecko on the other hand is very much at home in fact he is a so called house gecko prized for keeping the home free of nasty bugs like mosuitoes and despite the intimation of the book s title in translation a gecko is not a chameleonTo fictionalize one s life therefore not just in private but as one s public persona is essential therapy Childhood trauma can be eliminated Unfortunate parentage corrected Gaps in education filled Crimes erased The gecko s housemate Felix has found his calling as a man who dealt in memories a man who sold the past clandestinely the way other people deal in cocaine Felix is an artist As he confides to the gecko I think what I do is really an advanced kind of literature he told me conspiratorially I create plots I invent characters but rather than keeping them trapped in a book I give them life launching them out into reality His philosophy conforms nicely with the advice of the gecko s father Literature is the only chance for a true liar to attain any sort of social acceptance And who could argue If national history is a matter of variable interpretation why not individual life histories Truth Felix believes is a superstition We are happy only for those brief moments we close our eyes to realityBesides do we not grow into our fictions Is it better we merely accept those given us by our parents or boldly create our own Isn t this what setting goals in life is about telling ourselves stories about ourselves and then living up to the stories And where can truly original authentic stories come from but an imaginary past And of course if one can successfully invent oneself it is possible to invent one s family one s ancestors one s friends and acuaintances with euivalent ease With only a little practice we can be discussing them with others visiting their graves posting newspaper adverts to find those with whom we have list touch If reality is a convention our living it makes it realThe difficulty naturally with fictional reality is that it gets out of control rather easily For example the President the government even in principle the entire country can be replaced replicated and there would be no way to know A fantasy police force a fantasy justice system with stand ins created by the Mafia or the Russians or Mossad And this long before the person of Donald Trump emerged as an international figureBut there s an even fundamental problem All stories are connected In the end everything is connected Eventually the lies collide with each other The 17th century philosopher Gottfried Leibniz speculated that God told everyone s story and ensured that all stories were consistent It s not a bad theory if one is a theist But if there is no one coordinating the self generated fictions the results can be disastrous especially when things like revenge for atrocities are at stake The network of lies then threatens to unravel violently The gecko is Agualusa s god like presence He doesn t know the real stories of Felix s clients but he does know the fictions that Felix creates for them and he knows these to be fictitious geckos can t blink and their adhesive feet make them uite literally part of the walls so they see and hear everything Apparently geckos are long lived creatures but they are not immortal And they are vulnerable to the demonic scorpion What happens when the gecko dies
