Simplicity Redefined

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction"
In a world governed by complexity, where the need to see the truer and the simpler form of things is walked upon, it is indeed true that simplicity is elegance. 
The thought is easy enough to grasp. Whatever is easy to understand is simple, but to practice it in its truest form is often quite intricate . We find our lives recurrently cluttered with emotionless attachments and useless burdens that are the epitome of complexity. Simplicity is often elusive, but always present.

The epiphany that ‘simple is better’ was fuelled again by the newer visionaries like Steve Jobs, Larry Page and Sergey Brin and Mark Zuckerberg. They have recognised the power of simplicity and its form as an art. No longer is 'simple' linked with inefficient or futile. Simplicity is now demanded. It is expected.

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." -Leonardo da Vinci 

The world now calls for a genius who can transform the yet complex reality into a simpler web of knowledge; an ingenious web that is free from the binding of being complicated.

Simplicity is being redefined and there's a revolution in the boil. It is not the calm before a storm.
“Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing." - Oscar Wilde
