it seems like a general phenomenon that our scientific understanding decreasing with the complexity of the system. in classic physics, we could have very clean equations capturing the dynamics of a system. this is not true any more in chemistry/biology/social science. modern deep learning pipeline, compared to its shallow counterparts, gains more complexity, so it's not surprising at all to me that we are not able to understand it well at the moment.
