Two examples of this phenomenon in a non computer setting.

A primitive in one context might turn out to be a composite of primitives in another. For instance, our while statement is a primitive in our pseudocode, yet it is ultimately implemented as a composite of machine language instructions. One example is found in the composition of matter. - At one level, the primitives are considered molecules, yet these particles are actually composites made up of atoms, which in turn are composed of electrons, protons, and neutrons. -Today, we know that even these “primitives” are composites.
