Never forget the Music

What is the relationship between science and storytelling? The collection of data, the ideas we weave from them, similar aesthetics? Is bad science bad storytelling? Stories constrained by an external limit: often more interesting; science as weaving meaning, stories out of data, data being the constraint? Nature of parsimony..

What is the relationship between understanding people and being able to plausibly inject stories one makes into them?

If stories are so much part of how we see ourselves, the idea of storytelling may infuse everything we do. Still, the concept of stories is so broad, maybe this statement fails to cleave reality and in doing so becomes a perspective rather than necessarily a candidate for truth. If we are to include of the flavour of being storytellers and storylivers and storykillers into how we see ourselves as humans and as thinkers, that would be, I think, a pretty identity.
