Going to the second page of the article, where the meat is. We confabulate to explain stuff and we are good at it.

The "Interpreter" in Your Head Spins Stories to Make Sense of the World | Mind & Brain | DISCOVER Magazine

The desire to create cause and effect scenarios is engrained in us. It may be a lesson not to take such ideas too seriously.

The Politics and Other Controversies Forum is ample proof of this. A compendium of millions of postings by people who have no capacity at all to think logically. Ideas get planted in one of their hemispheres, and they spin out of control in fatal illogical argument.

the typical post on CDF OP is vague. not much detail. this is useful. then people like me will guess and assume and then the arguments begin. if the facts were known we would not fill in the blanks and there would be no CDF.
