With Houston, we've got a Narrative, he lays out a stunningly basic process for turning the boring into the dramatic. Drawing on his precise historical past, which observed him go away his task as a operating scientist to release a profession as a filmmaker, Olson first diagnoses the matter: while scientists let us know approximately their paintings, they pile one second and one aspect atop one other second and one other detail—a stultifying procession of “and, and, and.” What we'd like in its place is an figuring out of the elemental parts of tale, the narrative buildings that our brains are all yet hardwired to appear for—which Olson boils down, brilliantly, to “And, yet, Therefore,” or ABT.
