Hi Robert,
Physical Scientists are trying to build and announce a model of physical occurrances which will be consistent with the "data & equations framework" they have so made far.
They can build simple visual simulations from their equations, but the complex under-pinnings of the phenomena are going to be comprehended mostly by the physicists themselves
It is probable that some of their present thinking will have to be revised, but these
blind explorers surely are gradually mapping the real elephant.
While it cannot help but be incomplete,
what map is not incomplete (and sketchy) ?
Still, even the best map may not be able to
do more than trace part of a process.
In the map metaphor, for example, the map they draw could be a longterm "geological map" of creation but we still might want maps with other content.

Sorry the Yanniru Hemisphere of my brain is so rude. He is, by his account, a convert to Judaism, while I am just a science fiction person.
