Knowledge is constructed from the interogation of fragments and the consequent interpretation of what is inferred. within science the goal is to achieve objectivity, an understanding that is free from any subjective interference, yet equally any interpretation must involve the subjective, for pre-existing beliefs (whether well founded or not) will colour any observations.
The complexity of the world, and how we perceive the world we encounter, means that we are constantly engaged in a process of filtering our perceptions, choosing what we regard as important or relevant to our present purpose. Any attempt to produce a worldview will also involve this editing of material, and produce a focus on one area and the consequent downplaying of the importance or other phenomena. An image springs to mind of this process, that of the lens that magnifies a chosen point, while beyond this the focus becomes less clear until objects cease to be relevant.
