- "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler" - Albert Einstein
- HUH? Can somebody translate that into something simple, for me?
Metaphysically speaking, when you make [complex] things simple enough for people to understand, they become transparent, clear - visible enough to see through.
If you make them simpler than that (clear, transparent) they become invisible, blank, empty, i.e., they no longer convey enough information to be meaningful, or in other words, they lose [the transparency of] the original meaning.
I hope that was simple enough? ;^)
