You are a reality inventor. People simply don't give you enough credit; in fact, you don't appreciate your own creative ability. What does it mean to be a reality inventor? Isn't reality simply stuff that's out there? We see,hear, taste, feel, and smell it; but we certainly don't invent it. This book claims that you do.

Humans are animals who create stories. We are unable to not story--we speak and think in stories called sentences. INVENTING REALITY explores the psychology of story making and confabulation. We confabulate when we create stories without an awareness of our authorship. These confabulations are not perceived as invented stories; instead they become our personal reality.
