That's A Big Animal.....

a: Study of metastasis ~
b: group of blind people studying an elephant

What: "By analogy, the study of metastasis is like a group of blind people studying an elephant. Each describes the pachyderm based on the part (s)he touches, but none comprehends the whole elephant because his/her exposure is limited. Likewise, the complexity of metastasis can only be appreciated when one either steps back from a specialized area and examines the landscape or communicates with other researchers studying other aspects of the process."
