Our Stories

Our lives and our selves are our personal stories. Each perspective  is a reality, composed of a narrator, a setting, characters, and a plot. As one of my favorite philosophers of consciousness, Daniel Dennett, describes it:  “Professional novelists, like con artists, create narratives with cunning and deliberate attention to the details.
