Do you mean an individual person doesn't have to understand every single detail to understand something?

If that were the standard, in my case for example, the stock market would literally be some kind of magical fantasy land ruled by warlocks or something,
It isn't a fantasy land ruled by warlocks?

I'd drop the "magical" though. But a warlock has to be magical, right? Let's say a fantasy land ruled by people with dark souls.

Nor am I. I meant we are for the purposes of this thread.

I have not really been into science fiction since I was a kid,
LOL, it's the same in my case. The difference is that you're old, and the Terminator was on when I was a kid.

so I really only know what people are talking about with stuff like Skynet from the context,
That's more than enough. I probably got it wrong anyway.
