Excellent article. Very thought-provoking. Reading the article made me wonder about:
1. Existence of data establishing relationships — Whether there is any data that would provide answers to the question of what the relationships might be between (X) actual complexity, (Y) the perceived need to embrace that complexity, and (Y) the extent to which the average person actually embraces that complexity?
2. Graphing approximation of relationships — Whether the following rough hypothetical graph (or some alternative graph that you would propose) would better represent a fair approximation of such relationships?
What do you think?
