I think I have made incremental progress in understanding you all "complete story" muppets and in understanding the source of our disagreement.
There are broader arcs of stories in scientific investigation. On this I think we all agree.
We would like to read the entire arc. On this, I think, we all agree.
The critical difference is this.
Is your main motivation that you want to read that story and find out where it goes?
Or is your main motivation that you want to be the one to discover, create and/or tell that story, all by your lonesome, so you get as much credit for it as possible?
While certainly subject to scientific ego, I conclude that I lean much more toward wanting to know the story than you "complete story" people do.
Conversely, I conclude that you "shows mechanism", "complete story" people lean towards your own ego burnishing for participation in telling the story than you do towards wanting to know how it all turns out as quickly as possible.
