The Forest Metaphor

Stories are like trees. Stories grow in this soil. Thus all stories are like trees rooted in facts.

A simple story is like a tree with three main branches of roots (three related ODEs). A complex story adds to this birds (ideas), clouds (feelings), and more roots (extra facts).
