"I am reminded of the story of the teacher who tears to shreds a map of the world and, thinking it an impossible task, gives it to a recalcitrant student to put together. Within ten minutes the boy is back, the task completed. Astounded, the teacher asks him how he did it. The boy replies. "When I turned the pieces over, I found a torn-up man. I put him back together, and when I looked at the other side, the world was whole again."
