    2. No. Sorry, the meaning changes dramatically depending on what particle you use in place of "that". When you say "arc of a story", story is describing arc, but it's a countable object (one story, two stories), so you use "of". "that" can also have the function of using the next part of the sentence to describe "arcs". But it is used to describe something using an abstract idea. Like "we found the building that we wanted to find". "wanting to find a building" is abstract. Not countable. So "arcs that many stories" does not make sense alone. Therefore, our mind keeps reading to try to make sense. We try to see if "that many stories are at odds with this reality" this whole idea can describe "arcs". No, because when the word "arc" is alone it means curve, etc. You need "arc of a story" to give it the special meaning of direction or plot of a story. You have to choose a more suitable word. If you say "we discovered the fact that many stories are at odds with this reality", it would make sense.
