If you’ve ever read “Sherlock Holmes” by Arthur Conan Doyle, you might recall 🤔 this Dr. Watson saying the following: “When I hear you give your reasons,” I remarked, “the thing always appears to me to be so ridiculously simple that I could easily do it myself, though at each successive instance of your reasoning I am baffled until you explain your process. And yet I believe that my eyes are as good as yours” (Bohemia.1.12-13). That’s right - more than often things are actually way simpler than they appear at the first glance! It only takes a good explanation to get it quickly or several hours 🕰 of digging ⛏️ . What I am doing is digging for you 😊.
I strongly believe that any person can get any idea, any notion so long as it’s explained simply. Anything can be broken down to just simple and small building blocks. For example, consider “Code” by Charles Petzhold (consider reading this treasure if you haven’t already, believe me, it’s totally worth it). Things he’s explaining are so complex, but yet they seem to be so simple!
Albert Einstein once said: “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself”. Well, at least I think it was him, I’m really not very good at telling who said what, to be honest. But whoever said that, he couldn’t be more right!
That’s the main idea of my blog: explain really bewildering stuff as simple as I can, literally dissecting abstruse topics into small pieces. That’s exactly how I managed to get them myself. This is achieved via three main tools: visualization, spoken or literary language and analogies.
There are several sections on this website:
If you have some topics that you don’t understand (related to the ones, discussed in this blog), please, don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I’ll try to dissect it for you :)
