I assume this is a case of not quite saying what you intend to say.

What the article you are referring to claims, and I agree, is that no single brain holds all of the knowledge man has acquired over time. As a financial economist myself, I depend on doctors for knowledge of medicine, astronauts or physicists, or astronomers for knowledge of space, architects for knowledge that relates to putting up of buildings etc.

It is not the case then that I cannot understand knowledge domiciled in other disciplines. Rather, it is the case that just as I expect doctors or astronomers to depend on my proven expertise in financial economics, I also reciprocate by depending on their proven expertise in their areas of specialization. This is the ultimate quid-pro-quo of our common existence.
