WikiFiction is a page dedicated to the question: How ought fictional works be handled to explore the cognitive space of C. S. Lewis? Since fiction is a work of imagination and so a representation of a imagined reality as opposed to the direct reality of non-fiction, it seems a much more challeging thing to represent. I am going to suggest that in a sort of indented form that there is something like this structure.

C.S. Lewis
Works In Which are Embodied:
  • Imagined World(s)
    • Imagined Events
    • Imagined Characters in Imagined World(s)
*** Ideas of Imagined Characters
      • Relationship of these ideas with C. S. Lewis's Ideas
        • Inferentially the role the character and their ideas play in Lewis's own mind
*** Interrelationships among these ideas (agreement/disagreement)
  • Imagined Timeline of Imagined World(s)
    • In particular the way that events are seen to progress or regress

The image below is intended to be an Embedding Diagram expressing a relation such as INSIDE OF, so Lewis is inside of the Real World but the fictional worlds are inside Lewis' fiction which are inside of Lewis (conceptually) while also inside of Lewis are ideas of the real world (represented by Non-Fiction and ideas of the Imagination inside of his Fiction). All of the ideas are interrelated in complex ways which are not represented except by the connected bullets. The bullets are a device for expressing the fact, for example that Real People are conceived in Lewis's cognitive space but have a reality outside that space in the real world at a real time period, while imaginary people are not real and have no external reality except as the ideas that are engendered by their representation in the fiction. The ideas of imaginary people are real ideas however, even if they are only in the imagining of the real C. S. Lewis.
