Simple things amaze me… but is anything really that simple?
Could you imagine Abe Lincoln sitting down to actually try and figure out how to program a computer or website, even a [simple] one such as this? On the flip-side, he would definitely be able to figure out how to use a computer or browse a website within a short span of time because of how simple brilliant minds have made it.
Until it’s simple, it’s complex. Simple as that.
“A ‘thing’ may seem impossible only until the persistence of its realization proves it is not impossible. Then, when realized you continue to build upon and aggrandize [make greater] the ‘thing’ which at one time you deemed impossible.” – J. E.
Others experience teaches and moves our world forward so that we can do the same and make things a little less complex, we build onto what came before and that makes this a better place for future generations. Even the things that seem to hinder us when seen in retrospect have a certain aspect to them that has made a positive contribution to who and what we are.
The sun is 92.96 million miles away, and when it comes over the horizon you can see it as clearly as you can see your hand in front of your face, until it gets too bright that is. Somewhere around 960,000 earths can fit into that ball of fire. There is nothing simple about that.
Fact is we live in a very complex world but it will be as simple as we make it.
