Temporal and linear sequencing is the dominant form of narrative structure in Western theory and practice. Prominent philosophers and psychologists have made categorical claims about the necessity of this form of narrative order. One of the associated problems with this structure is that while the inference between causality and succession has been called out as a fallacy, it nevertheless operates from common superstition to contemporary theoretical discourse. Further, moral elements are tacitly imported along with temporal and linear narrative association. These moral elements include moral responsibility, blame, normativity, and assumptions about what constitutes “the good life.” I do not address what is silenced, marginalized, or repressed by temporal structure, rather, I focus on what is snuck in, implied, tacitly assumed. This is what I refer to as moral contraband.
