What storytellers do

Embodiment and projecting a virtual body may sound dangerously space-age—holograms!—but in many ways, embodiment is very old. Older than writing, as old as stories, perhaps as old as language itself.

What does a storyteller do other than use their voice and body to project characters and feelings into the minds of their listeners?

What is language other than a tool for transmitting new mental representations of the world into the minds of other people?
