And they're arbitrary. I think those lines work best when they are fuzzy, temporary, just markers to help us move beyond them. You move them to a different place as your understanding grows.

Line drawing is a fundamental thing that humans do that has its advantages, but it can also have big disadvantages. I don't understand why some people insist that the lines they draw are permanent, especially the lines that other people have drawn for them!
