bateson simple/complex law

simplicity is complexity with grace

That is why i say that complexity and simplicity are the same.


from this twitter exchange

It takes complexity to perceive complexity.This is what I am working  with right now. That means more than one texture of language, &  multiple forms of expression describing entirely different contexts of  complexity are necessary. Flat monotone jargon is not enough. #WarmData

perhaps not only is flat monotone jargon not enough.. perhaps it’s getting in the way.. imagine if we let go enough.. to not have to keep universally defining things.. (so many saying we need a new language/verbiage.. ie: symmathesy  .. which ends up meaning.. that we defn more words and then think we have to train/teach those words into others.. et al) but maybe what we really need is letting 7bn daily idio-jargons.. be the new (non)language.. to get to the energy we need most (7bn alive people).. simple enough

@NoraBateson i think it takes simplicity to transcend complexity .. the simple unity of consciousness, the simple unity of nature .. complexity is an aberration of intellect, simplicity is the wisdom of unity

Original Tweet:

perhaps in an undisturbed ecosystem.. complexity and simplicity are one in the same

@monk51295 @gregorylent the opposite of complexity is reductionism… not simplicity. :-)

simplicity is complexity with grace.

Original Tweet:

complexity w grace.. sounds like an undisturbed ecosystem..

simple enough.. assume good

@gregorylent @monk51295 I would say complexity is another word for life. It is the ‘being’ processes of several variables in relationship, and interdependency form contexts. Responding to responses to responses…

Original Tweet:

so the grace.. (letting go ness ie:undisturbed ecosystem).. to trust the being..

@gregorylent @monk51295 haha… well for me it is an adventure into the many multitudes of differences interacting. That is why i say that complexity and simplicity are the same... but redutionism… now that’s a problem. When contexts are broken that which gave them life is obscured.

simple enough

simplicity  as it could be

Gall’s Law:
“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over with a working simple system.” ~ John Gall (
