Kinesthetic-modular build instructions have built-in logic based on how a machine goes together. That logic - based on modular understanding - is visible to the builder. Procedural instructions are on the other hand dumb. The builder does not see integrated assembly logic. Kinesthetic-modular build instructions begin with understanding of the modular breakdown for a machine.
