    Story telling demands resolution. Why? Reality simply progresses without pause. The perceptual apparatus abstracts some portion of reality and passes it to the mind. First the mind  partitions (parses) perceptions into events (occurances) and  organizes them into resolved stories capable of being named, remembered and structured into useful simulations of reality (phenomena) which form a phenomenology from which the organism evinces patterns which promote  sucesses (survival). To perceive raw reality devoid of a priori impositions of mentation is difficult, perhaps impossible (for most) and perhaps unrewarding. Surely poets (artist)are treasured because  their phenomenologies permit uncommon insights into reality. Van Gogh and I have both seen starry nights.  LeoG
