Why shouldn’t we break long pasta before cooking it?

That's how it should be eaten. Let the ends stick out until the submerged sections soften. Then stir to bend the pasta and push it underwater. Don't add oil to the pot in an attempt to keep the pasta from sticking together―stirring with a pasta fork is much more effective.
