By Steven | November 11, 2009

(With apologies to Einstein, who’s often quoted as the source for the saying that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler”. Ironically, it seems he didn’t say that at all, but something much less simple: “It can scarcely be denied that the supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience.”)
