When we are faced with a geoscientific problem, we typically bring in the experts to collect more data and look in more and more detail.  But so often, so much detail is established that we can no longer see the big picture.  More often than not we need to step back, remove several layers of detail and frame the problem in much simpler terms.  in this way we can more clearly see the problem and focus on a suitable solution.

There is a problem called “complexification”, whereby we increase the detail just beacuse we can, not because we need to.  A core part of the Geolumina philosophy is to understand how to step back and see the big picture.
