On falcons and our blind faith in models

We naively trust models. See them as interchangeable, interoperable. If it has wings, it must be a bird. If it’s a bird, it must be a chicken. If it’s a chicken, we must eat it. If we eat it, it must be nutritious. And so on. If we do not understand a model or what it’s a reduction of, we fail to respect its limitations.
