Shagh al-Sadr's narrative language makes human mind to struggle between imaginary and reality world and it unifies them in such a way that the wisdom can hardly distinguish the boundary between them. this story begins with a real and regular image. children drowned in their own world and are busy with playing and fun. everything is normal until suddenly two people come in and change the story line. they appear in the form of human but their behavior and deeds are different with human characteristics. it’s remarkable that how the caviling reader goes between these mental spaces and finally can get to a clear and solid image. in other words, how the story reader’s mind analyzes these unusual deeds.
In fact, in order to accept this strange story, the mind must be able to communicate between real and imaginary spaces and unites them that it will be impossible to separate them.
Therefore, conceptual blending theory allows the mind to use multiple and related mental spaces that have different meanings. Then it combines them together and can examine these different meanings in an efficient and proper way and achieve the semantic network constituting mental spaces.
In this research, we show how, by referring to the components and processes underlying the conceptual mixture theory, we can show the way of illustration in the story and construct of meaning according to the component of the continuity of meaning in Shagh al-Sadr's narrative. We also show how to use an idea of the four spatial concepts of conceptual blending theory, as well as processes such as combining, completing and extending, and principles such as defiance and principle of access, creating and maintaining the continuity and consistency between images.
