        PER-5      Complex problems/simple solutions  November 26th, 1985

        Complex problems and simple solutions.

             The relationship between problem and solution is always 
             complex and simple.

             Problems are essentially opaque; that's the very thing about 
             a problem, you don't know what to do.   

             When you do know what to do, ... no problem. 

             A solution is thus always simple, resolving the complexity 
             and making the situation manageable.

             Sometimes it is so simple, and the apparent problem so 
             complex, that one is tempted to dismiss it out of hand.

             Too good to be true.

             How sad, to use such an idea to reject such an idea.
