Isles seem like single pieces that have no relation to each other. But if we look closer and look below the water, we see it stems from one and the same and that it’s just “hills” in the structure of earth.
But what does it mean? At first, we view it reductionistically; We explore every isle as its own and look at the details it contains. But then we discover that they are related to each other which makes us look holistically at it.
This is an adventure many scientists and mathematicians experience(d). To find connections between connectionless-seeming theories is indeed ecstatic. It gives us a deeper understanding of the cosmos we live in.
