We inhabit a story, with a particular structure. That story contains a representation of the desired future, compared to the interpreted present. It exists at different levels of resolution, from low-res abstract ideals, down to the conscious microbehaviors that make up our actual interaction with the world. A story tells about a journey from point a to point b. A revolutionary story, a meta-story, describes how one story was transformed by anomaly and crisis into another.
