is simplicity conceived through incomprehensible, complex thought? and is this incomprehensible, complex thought a delusion that leads to a determined, persevering attitude? an attitude in which people cant help, but stress, to find an answer for their eternally mystified wonders. is there something so simple, that in fact, it cant be further broken down into an explanation? does complexity simply define simpleness? what's more complicated, simplicity or complexity?

@formeng,
I suggest you are playing with the fact that concepts of "simplicity" and "complexity" are mutually defined. Neither has meaning without the other.

"Ultimate analysis" (aka atomic facts) was booted out by Wittgenstein in his rejection of his earlier work in the Tractatus using his later principle that all meanings are relative to context usage.
