Everything is a story, every -ism and -ology and -istics just a framework we cast out into the data brought to us by our sense organs. We like sharing our stories with others and we like living in the same tales as the people we care for, especially things that hang together well, that are funny, and that are true, or a convincing approximant. Like matryoshkas they nestle inside each other from the largest-scale Weltanschauung down to the seemingly insignificant things we tell ourselves or our friends. You don’t have the whole world figured out? Sometimes inside jokes have to make do.
