 Three levels of knowing

Simplicity is the world view of a child or uninformed adult, fully engaged
in his own experience and happily unaware of what lies beneath the surface of immediate reality.

Complexity characterizes the ordinary adult view.It is characterized by an awareness of complex systems  in nature and society, but an inability to discern clarifying patterns and connections.
Informed Simplicity is an enlightened view of reality. It is founded upon an ability to  to discern or create clarifying patterns within complex mixtures.

Mathew Frederick
