    Months later and many web sites and blogs … I came upon this saying.

    Not everything can be analytically picked to pieces and ‘understood’.

    Picking it apart structurally, conecptually, and socially as well as analytically might get you closer though.   

    Perhaps it is best to let reality study us.

    It can also get you farther from reality by analyzing it.  It all depends on the thing itself.
