How we explain things, life, whether we call our explanations history, science, literature, religion, experience, cinema, sports, art, etc., or just plain fact; how we understand our individual lives; it is all, they are all, stories. Stories fact, measurable, repeatable, material; stories physical; temporal; spiritual; singular; imaginative; adjectival.
The thing is: the stories that we listen to; that we take in; especially those we refer to, repeat, believe; are never just stories. They are not something to ignore.

They are our understanding of life.
