Reminds me of the Mason and the Bricklayer, a mason can tell you about the stone and mold it to whatever he needs it to be. He can do this because he has taken the time to really understand the medium and its limits and the techniques that are needed to build a solid structure. A bricklayer can tell you how long it will take, how many bricks are still in the pile and can replicate whatever wall you want. Each is needed, but the skill, expertise and price is the key difference.
