Thanks for sharing. 👍🏻

And this one got me thinking hard. 🤔
“ Complex is better than complicated.”

Think of it this way, you'd describe the relationship you have with your mother in law as complicated, and the reasons are subtle and different and they are all interrelated. And it really helps if you know all the back story.

However you'd describe the way in which aluminium is mined and purified as a complex process. But it can be broken down into steps, each step does not require knowledge of the step before it.
