"In my opinion, theories in general are just a model to some degree - its a trick of finding which one fits the pattern"

That is a opinion of I think it is Bohr.

Said in another way:

"The Map is not the territory"

"The Menu is not the meal"


People confuse their model of the world very often with "reality" and don't consider that their model is only one aspect of how reality can be viewed. It takes quite awhile for most to understand this at a gut level.
