A thought about analysis

Take the first part of this talk as a metaphor. The flatlander sees events which he can not predict as he sees the world. However, if he expands his vision and sees a more full version of the world, he can predict how and why previously inexplicable events in his two dimensional projection occur.

It has been suggested that there are normal problems and wicked problems -- the first class yield to analysis and the second fail to do so. Perhaps there is a third class of problems that appear wicked initially, but as we change our perspective become more normal.
