The problem with story is that our brains like them and it makes it hard to see other parts of the chaos that are around and sometimes attached to the story. These things in the chaos may be important to the story, but we have trouble integrating them in. Also once we have a story it is hard to undo.

I'm beginning to think that story is a way for our brains to separate some set of actions from the chaotic world for future reference. In the way that when you look at a crowd you find it really hard to see your friend. But when you do it is really hard to "see" the crowd anymore. .
