When you replace the spark plugs in your car you don't need to know
everywhere the car is going to go for the duration of its existence.
You just need to know how the spark plugs respond to voltage, current,
temperature and so on. If you can't predict this even in theory then
your car has magical spark plugs and you won't be able to replace
them. Same with your brain.
