3 Practical limits to modelling
More fundamental is what I would call "analytic complexity". This is the difficulty of analysing (producing a top-down model) of something, given a synthetic (bottom-up) model . Whether or not this difficulty is sometimes ultimate, few people would deny that such difficulties exist and that the exist arbitrary levels. Given that our analytic capabilities will always be limited (see above in Section 3.2), such complexity will always be a practical barrier to us*1.
