I loved it because I think of stories as a form of control. Specifically stories control our own experience, the experience of others and heck the experience of the whole dang planet of humans.
Not the same story or stories for all folks of course, but it’s essentially the stories we inhabit that determine how we experience what we can call our “beingness” or who we know ourselves to be in relation to everything and anything else.
The sense of being is critical, because it determines how we experience all the events of our lives.
Here’s my “ladder of sensation to action” …
External Data/Information –> Sensation –> Perception –> Sense-Making –> Meaning Making –> Decision Making –> Response/Action
This entire cognitive chain is contained in what we call, think of and experience as story.
So if we control the story, we can control the experience we and others are having about anything.
That’s some powerful stuff!
Story contains experience because of the way we represent and process it (experience). It’s something I refer to as ‘wholeform’, where the entire experience is had all at once.
We, humans, are designed to adumbrate reality, meaning we are endlessly predicting the future based on what we are experiencing now and have stored as having experienced in the past.
Story gives us a way to contain this process by the sense of narrative we have about it, aligning with what physicists and philosophers call the ‘arrow of time.’
When we know how to do it well stories can allow us to reshape time, and when we do that we create meaning that will form the basis of what we believe is most likely to be true for us going forward.
By getting ‘Story Control’ you get to decide how to move forward in your life and begin generating the realities that emerge as a result. So we can say that the ‘real’ function of story is taking control of the narrative of time, i.e.: what has happened, what is happening, what will happen.
