The greatest peace can be found in the most simplistic of things yet at the same time so can the greatest boredom, this means that peace generally leads to boredom and the need to find some form of entertainment leads to the production of chaos, chaos causes unrest which causes us to find peace and continue the cycle all over again. So what is your opinion upon this idea?

Complexity is far more dissonant, and infinitely sexier.

Especially in music.

Boredom with simplicity doesn't come from simplicity. We don't intrinsically seek more complicated tasks when we are bored, we simply seek different ones.

The way I've decided to live my life is to demand a very low standard of living and be happy with the simple things. When I tire of one activity, I seek another one that is equally low-maintenance and simplistic, but different.

And now you know why complex is sexier than simplicity. XP

That's not entirely true. Don't we all seek to be challenged?
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Complex, simple, they are all different textures.

But isn't most entertainment a medium for enjoying the self and others?
