The study of parts

Picture upon picture, piece upon piece, we dance with the smaller units to draw clarity into the bigger puzzle.

But it’s no wonder few people actually want to deal with the micro-units. All the details do is drive the layman insane. Generalists suffer at the hands of decision fatigue.

The subtleties inspire the specialists to add, remove, and study the reasons of parts. Experts enjoy making all the connections—the rest of us want to consume the finished product and bypass the lists.

As we exchange items and ideas to the public reservoir, we swap our time for somebody’s ease of consumption. Trading a passion for the tiniest of details is the best working system to date.
