Everything is a story...

A very interesting article on Larping (Live Action Role Playing) which highlights something buried deep down near the roots of the human condition.

One of the key messages of the book Sapiens is that we live in a world of stories. Companies are stories; countries, currencies, governments, and religions too.

Base reality is physics and chemistry, everything else is a story...

  ...even ourselves. This is rarely clearer than in this article.

 "So much of adult life is about LARPing, whether or not people realise it. When you take on a new job, you have to learn how to play that part, you have to learn how to act as that job."
