This script is a personal frame of reference that reshapes the past, describes the present and projects the future. In other words, our interpretation creates the features of contexts. Descriptions set the meaning of events which are emotionally colored by chemistry. This combination of chemistry and sense sets the way each person experiences everyday events.
