you’re not dissecting a butterfly; the butterfly is gone the moment you kill it.

Oh yes, the picking apart of the butterfly.
That always bothered me about the reductionist fashion. If you pin a butterfly to a board and dissect it, you’re not dissecting a butterfly; the butterfly is gone the moment you kill it.
it’s not that you can’t learn a lot by stacking jigsaw pieces but its value is limited and is really unrelated to the purpose and nature of the thing-in-itself.
