Default Atoms, Adams, Tales, Tails, Story, Storey

The quote was "The universe is made up of stories, not atoms". (Muriel Rukeyser) I couldn't help but wonder if she meant Adams because surely Adam's story states clearly that the universe was all about him, and without him there would be no stories, or tales and without Eve, Adam's story would have been pretty dull, but then Eve had a tale to tell about a snake who made her aware of her tail and Adam's snake which led to more people who told their own stories until they built a tower of many storeys about which they could no longer relate in one language until science claimed to be the universal language and told us all about atoms which was an incomplete tale because atoms had to be made of something too. Didn't they? Tell me a story.
