People absorb stories from their communities and take them into themselves and
use these stories to form their own spiritual autobiography.
They remember doing what the heroes of the stories did, and so they continue to
act out each hero's character in their own lives, or failing that,
they measure themselves against the standard the story set for them.
Stories become the human conscience, the human mirror.
