People love stories. It’s the one quality that sets us apart from other animals, if you ask me, the ability to make up stories. We are capable of creating fiction, concoctions, of air mongering, and so on. In short, we can imagine things that have nothing to do with the truth. We can fantasise.

So far everyone will be able to agree, I’d say. What many people don’t realise is that we also fantasise our daily life. Our whole life, our entire society, is one giant work of fiction.
