a: Academia ~
b: an intellectual ice cube tray

What: Reductionism run amok. Reductionism run amok in an authoritarian hierarchy. That's the situation in a typical academic bureaucracy . The disciplines tend not to talk to each other. None of the disciplines want to talk to each other. They each build a strong box and segment from the rest and go deep. That what's going on. There is much to be gained from breaking down these segments in the ice cube tray. But the attitude is so entrenched it will be a generation before intellectual integration takes place on a larger scale. ---Yes indeed.
