    Where is a memory? Is it stored inside of us, entire and complete, like a volume in a cellular archive, awaiting retrieval and rereading? Or is it a mosaic of experience fragments re-collected from bits and pieces of sensory input? Is it a feedback loop, folding now into then, truth into fiction?

    What do we do when we tell a story? What happens when we listen to a story told?
