Complexity


Our human nature craves simplicity, but reality is complex.

This is why we are driven to develop models to predict the future and then continue to apply them without thinking, even though we know they are wrong.

This also drives us to engage in single-issue politics even though we know there are many, many important issues.

We simply want a simple answer.
