One of the most important things I’ve learned over the course of my life is the wisdom of keeping things simple. I don’t know why it is, but we humans have a tendency to overcomplicate our lives. Why do you think that happens? I’ve pondered over it a bit, and I haven’t come up with any good answers.
Speaking of answers, perhaps you’ve heard of “Occam’s Razor” or “Ockham’s Razor” as it’s sometimes spelled. If you’re not familiar with the concept, please don’t look it up online. If you do, you run the risk of stumbling across this monstrous definition from Merriam-Webster:
…a scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.
