Complicated Stars But a Simple Sky

Book coverComplexity is also very simple. It is so complex it becomes simple. You look up at the sky and see the stars, thousands of millions of them. They seem to be very complicated. It’s difficult to name them, find out what they are, and so on. But still, it’s a simple sky. The complexity and the simplicity amount to the same thing. Confusion and complexity are the expression of simplicity.
