SS: Suspension of Disbelief

Suspending Disbelief: Allowing the author to take you, the reader, on an imaginary flight with new rules and insights of behavior.(Speical Report)
Suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief is a term coined in 1817 by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgement concerning the implausibility of the narrative.
