interpreting stories

“This is very much like ‘Structuralism’ — “the belief that phenomena of human life are not intelligible except through their interrelations. These relations constitute a structure, and behind local variations in the surface phenomena there are constant laws of abstract culture.” (Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy)  i.e., narrative structures since the a human mind mirrors a world that reflects the human mind’s perceptive abilities, which is shaped by stories.

You’re creating a path for someone to engage in the structure of the universe itself via the medium of cards.  You are inviting them to travel that path with you via the medium.”
