General definition of surrealism

"In surrealism the world of the story isn’t cohesive… there are no consistent internal laws established to be followed. One person can occupy two different bodies, or can appear in two places at once; objects lose their literal meaning and become purely conceptual or metaphorical. Landforms float; clocks melt; bodies fold in on themselves. Surrealism is about creating a rupture in the consistency of OUR world, and it does this to expose the psychological mechanisms we use to understand our reality."
