One only understands the small slice of reality to which one directs their attention. By defining a small area of interest, one can find depth of knowledge; like observing a wave in a lab’s wave pool, for example. But in limiting the scale dramatically and creating a controlled environment, the greater context and complexity is eliminated and the information garnered is also of limited use. The definition of scale in the drawing of boundaries exerts a value system. One decides what is worthy of attention. This is a powerful choice for the beings living on the edges and traveling between.
