Physics is 'hard', in the same way, for the same reasons. Physicists
'just' 'assume-away' all the analogous variability which exists
everywhere within physical reality.

Then they 'laugh' at Biologists :-]

Really, what's necessary is learning-from-one-another,
interdisiplinary endeavor.

The need for such is augmenting greatly.
