There seems to be those that like to complicate and others who want to simplify. The purpose of these different outlooks in life can vary. Understanding each skill set brings with it moments of creation and balance.
The Complicated Mindset.
Those that seem to complicate the very simplest of things don’t understand why they do so. The action of complication gives a person justification and a feeling of superiority in their mindset. Both advantages and disadvantages are depending on the situation presented to them.
A mind that likes complication may do some of the following:
Use Excel sheets to track their life finance and purchases. Before they purchase something big, say a computer or television. They will have to research it first. They want to see the spec of each product lined up together and outway the benefits within each price range. This a big thing to consider and they may take several months or even years; to do what they think is compulsive behaviour. Finally, they will decide on the purchase. For a simplified mind, this is complete madness. To a complicated mind, this was a considered and perfect purchase.
They struggle with things like writing or typing or information does not fall from their mind. They need to research everything first based on the question given. It will take them longer than normal to write a single article or blog post. Everything has to be perfect; this means a complicated mindset will have good spelling and grammar skills. They are more likely to base their opinion on academic research. However, they may struggle to tell the story through creative means.
Every Day Tasks
Here are some variables that complicated minds use every day:
- They over analyse partners, style and their workflow
- What’s the rush? They like to take their time
- This type of mindset can produce some of the best academic minds
- A struggle may arise with simple social settings, like meeting new faces for the first time
- They can hold a good argument but will only see reality from their point of view. They may refuse any other amount of information until they go away and research it
- Seeing the world from one point of view is common. They see it as they live it and struggle to see beyond what’s in front of them.
The Simplistic Mind
Here comes the compulsive free spirit that likes the simpler things in life. This type of person tends to be creative and thinks differently; which can hinder their personality in many social settings as people don’t take them seriously. Logic can defy the academic mind, and they use their instincts and intuition more often.
A simple purchase can be decided after a quick scan of all that’s on offer. A relaxed mind tends to buy what is deemed to be right or based mainly on feeling.
However, the simplistic mind can write a story and keep going with flourishes of content. Yet, they can sometimes lack the academia to give their work credit. Lasting five years in one line of employment is excellent, going for a simplistic mindset. They seek to change their environment often and relish in new challenges.
Of course, there are different ranges and variables for each mindset. What I have shown here is extreme examples of each particular subject. You may read these examples and place yourself in one group. But this doesn’t mean to say you can’t change or dip between each range. The mind is capable of doing many things. You have a learning ability which adapts to learning from other people.
The Hyperthreaded Paradox Effect.
There has to be an advantage through observing these different minds. Can we learn anything from knowing this information?
In fact, the key to the question is simple. A hyperthreaded mind can look at a complex situation or theory, completely understand it and simplify it for all to understand.
The simplistic mind understands the complexity in order to simplify it.
Let’s put this into practice and look at the double-slit experiment from 1801.
The modern double-slit experiment is a demonstration that shows light and matter can display characteristics of both classically defined waves and particles. Moreover, it reveals the fundamentally probabilistic nature of quantum mechanical phenomena.
Here is a video explaining this experiment so a 5-year-old can understand it. The key to this video is understanding how we as humans observe with our eyes or with an instrument.
Besides, the complex mind will agree with the information presented and may spend many years trying to solve the problem. Achieving these outcomes could be in the form of different experiments based on mathematical theories and principles.
Merging Both Mind-Sets
A simplistic mind will question it and offer alternative theories. They may try and make an alternative connection through different areas of the problem. A hyperthreaded mind that understands the experiment for both complexity and simplicity might conclude:
As a photon travels on all wavelengths, we as humans can see it in a particular way; that makes sense to us at that time. We only see the results of the experiment; based on our ability to harness the information through our evolved state. When we use our technology and to try to see particles or wavelengths differently, the results might seem out of place. This is because we don’t understand everything that is taking place. Our equipment and the human sight of analysis is only showing us half the picture.
Seeing Is Believing
To say the Moon is only there when we look at it and then disappears when we don’t observe it; from a quantum mechanics perspective, means we forget to question the observer’s ability – to see all that is going on. Humans make massive assumptions and seem to relish in their sense of achievement. It gives them significance in a universe they don’t understand.
To find the answers, we need to observe our Galaxy as one. Understand a galaxy is a miniature universe, our solar system is a small galaxy, and our mind can be a tiny universe. It explodes and implodes the connection of everything.
