Abstract

Since the first campfire was lit, humans have told each other stories. There is just something magical about them. They allow us a glimpse into other lives, other situations than our own, and provide us with a better understanding of everything around us. Just like playing is a form of practice in agility and in hunting and surviving, so stories offer mental play to allow us to prepare for situations that might possibly arise. Stories are just naturally fascinating for us and we are drawn to them.
