It is an explanation unlike any other: Both are instructive, but the stories we tell about but arguably never witnessed — the observer sees only them resist sloppy thinking and lazy writing.

Each offers the reader different puzzles, new ways of wondering, and a variety of fields to engage with. It is merely a suggestion that we stop to ponder the trajectories of the mind—but to do so discriminately.

It courses our brains as returns, heavy machinery orders, or Southern Oscillation chastening and inspiring homilies when we enter voting intensity that are quantified and modeled to predict past booths. And we reflexively invoke historical comparisons and future. The notion that economies or nature can all the time, when we shop for food or evaluate products be truncated and summarized is alien to historians, yet or weigh which neighborhood we should inhabit.
Sooner even here we see an assumption of inertia. Scientists and or later even clueless adolescents learn that they must live sociologists alike assume that the past operates as if it with the consequences, and even radical individualists ad- has mass, motion, and impact. What changes is the way mit that none of us quite control our fate.
In the end we do scientific history resembles a train. If the past has inertia, if rails. Treating history like a train past. Aside from maybe a case of mild whiplash, there is obscures the disorder, the flat-out messiness that is a core rarely a lasting legacy once the carny operator kills the feature of life.
The problem is controlled or even controllable? In reaction to attempts finding a literary device that conveys motion and mass and to model history, Richard White once offered a counter that accommodates a consideration of individual and col- example that tilts inertia toward mayhem.

If we agree that inertia of these histories easily or rightly suggest a rock, river, is a relevant metaphor but that rivers, boulders, and trains bumper car, or pretty much anything else.
