Sometimes, it's tempting to make matters...complicated. OK, a lot of the time. That just seems to be human nature.
Especially in times of stress, we humans seem to look for increasingly elaborate ways to deal with our issues and problems. We construct ever more complex models and interventions, tacking on one more bit to the widget, fiddling with the input/output calibration, micronizing the McGuffins, and so on. (
In case you hadn't guessed by now, I am not a qualified engineer; your problem-solving complications may vary.)
