“Story” and nature of experience

Michael Saler writes in “The Times Literary Supplement”

Once upon a time science seemed destined to replace religion as the
source of all explanations. Today, however, “story” has become the
master metaphor that we use to interpret experience, including the
mysteries of God and Nature. This recourse to story-talk is
everywhere, uniting the two cultures, the arts and sciences. It is
thus not surprising to find the astrophysicist Sean Carroll endorsing
Muriel Rukeyser’s line of poetry, “The universe is made of
stories, not of atoms”. Carroll used it to support his own brief
for the “poetic naturalism” of science: “That is absolutely
correct. There is more to the world than what happens; there are the
ways we make sense of it by telling its story”.

    to validate whether this was all hype.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the
    eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out
    a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
