I think of this lesson as “having a large, purposeful boulder.”
Now this boulder is pretty large and takes some time to walk around; once this walk is complete however, one has an understanding of the boulder’s purpose.
To make things easier, we decide to cleave this boulder into three smaller boulders. Now, one must walk around three boulders, but the time to comprehend is easier. It’s simple to keep the purpose of only three boulders in our heads.
Feeling clever, we decide to break these three boulders into many many smaller boulders, almost sand.
Attempting to examine the grains of sand now takes eons as the tiny particles slip through our fingers.
