In short, we’re always constructing our reality as we go along. It happens quickly – 400ms after perception is the story construction begins.

That’s a good question. It seems, more often than not, that people are “winging it” as best they can.

Cognitively, things happen. We observe stuff and compare it to what we already think we know, and then we come up with a story to explain it that makes sense to us.

In short, we’re always constructing our reality as we go along. It happens quickly – 400ms after perception is the story construction begins.

So, considering what we know is always “after the fact” – what *is* the fact? Depends on the story… and… perhaps not everybody is a good storyteller and their explanations are unnecessarily complex for that reason alone.

Honestly? I don’t know. I’m just winging it.
