    Empathy results from seeing and understanding the larger system that you and others are embedded in, seeing *why* others act as they do.

    A medium can show context and connections. Without context, you assume ill intentions in others. WIth context, you can think systemically.

    Narrative inherently embraces simple causes, personal agency, single perspective, limited context. A medium for empathy won't be stories.

  3. @ftrain Empathy or pity? All of those are "monsters vs victims" stories. True empathy would be understanding the monsters.

  5. @ftrain I feel that *writing* a bio could be a tremendously empathetic experience, but much of that understanding gets lost when serialized

  7. @ftrain Agreed, but I'd also like empathy for everyone interacting with him, and everyone interacting with them...

    @ftrain I want to understand *why* he's experiencing those experiences. That's the only path to addressing systemic issues.

  9. @ftrain unscroll isn't a narrative, it's a medium for seeing context :)
