Not all views offer the same unobstructed view of reality. Sometimes things, important things, inescapable things can get in the way. It is not always possible to change our perspective due to location, barriers or time therefore we need to use our imagination. Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes used deductive reasoning to take a few facts and paint an accurate picture of a real life that they had not yet seen or experienced. While none of us are one of the Holmes brothers, we need to realize that there are times where making a decision based on imperfect information is necessary. The grate on the bridge is a barrier, it blocks some of what we can see in the distance; we can fill in the blanks but only if we use a small portion of our imagination.
