Flagship Interview Podcast: πŸŽ™οΈ A Curious Worldview - (this is the one I speak about at the end)

The difference between understanding the components of something versus how that same thing works can be everything.

It’s clearly not a universal rule. By understanding the components of a bike, and then how each component behaves with the other we can confidently claim to know how a bike works. I know that cycling the sturdy pedal will pull the chain that will then turn the wheels.

Everything else around that core functioning is just aesthetic or qualitative detail. 

But by mapping out all the organic components of a human body, from organs to bones and everything in between – does our understanding of each component then inform to confidently assert how it all works? I am not sure.

Just because you can map out a system does not mean you understand how it behaves.
