It turns out that if you left a frog in a pot of water and turned up the heat, the frog has the instincts to jump out and save her life.

The whole frog not being able to see what’s coming and being boiled alive is a myth. A fable.

Because frogs, like people, can sense danger. Regardless whether the threat is gradual or sudden.

That’s the power of stories, they have the ability to stick in our culture. Humans are story telling creatures and once an idea sticks it’s hard to loosen its grip.

Even if the story isn’t true.
