In Response to: In Our Heads

In regard to Dr. Michael Graziano’s inspired efforts, allow me to offer an observation I inflicted many years ago within the context of computational fluid dynamics: “First, we have reality, which we don’t understand. We then create a complicated model. Now we have two things we don’t understand.” Perhaps the Bard more gracefully provided guidance for humility, noting, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy” (Hamlet I, v, 166).
