  • Dane Balia thinks this is interesting:

Imagine a restaurant kitchen. Customers order food off a menu. These orders come into the kitchen through a little window (the one with the bell beside it, “order up!”) and the food eventually comes out. To a naïve imagination it may seem as if the kitchen is filled with magical plates of food that are waiting, pining to be ordered, but in reality the kitchen is full of people, food, and frenzied activity and each order triggers a new construction and assembly process.
