Stories are how we prepare for the future.


"Our understanding of the past and the future live in the same part of our brain. The act of remembering and the act of looking into the future are essentially the same action. On top of that, the way our brains process these visions is through words; through language and storytelling. Stories about the past and stories about the future allow us to adapt in a complex and shifting world. Stories are how we prepare for the future." (p. 657)

"“Something that troubles me recently is that I think we are producing two classes of people: a consumer class and a producer class,” Bruce (Mau) explained. “The consumer class is very different from the producer class, one makes and one consumes. One has the power to build while the other is powerless to act. What worries me about the producer class is that they typically interact with other producers. It is our responsibility to prevent that class structure from crystallizing." (p. 682)
