Stories and characters are a constant source of fascination for our species. Wouldn’t it be interesting to learn from other creatures, whether or not they have anything similar?
Some people talk dismissively about gossip, but everyone does it, one way or another.
Journalists, historians, authors, playwrights, poets, all tell stories. We use these narratives as maps or guides as we embark on our own journeys through life.
Sometimes we get confused about the purpose of a given tale. Precise knowledge about the sector of our world that needs to hear something can save a lot of time and energy.
It is also helpful for those who are talked about to know when to step aside. Very few of us can be of interest to others, all of the time.
