The Empirical Wise Man



Simple Stories

As I said, the Empirical Wise Man's truth, stories, come in two forms, simple stories and complex stories.

A simple story is a single sequence of at least three ODEs with no feelings, stories, or extra facts present.






The Empirical Wise Man's Truth - Stories

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).
