Narrative World vs. Phenomenal World

When I talk about Ottawa, that’s the world, isn’t it?  It’s a place that some of you have been to, but most of you haven’t.  As you’re listening, each of you hear the words of that story in a different way.  This personal interpretation of what I said is another way of thinking about the world.  This is the world in a different way.  It’s not the world out there; it’s the world that i’m experiencing moment-by-moment.  I like to think of that as stream of consciousness.
