Deep Simplicity

Deep Simplicity

Don't underestimate the basics! They are the key to effective thinking.

By understanding simple ideas deeply, we can build lasting knowledge and easily grasp complex ideas.

In short: get the basics right and everything else falls into place.

  • Basic knowledge is important!
  • It helps predict what matters.
  • And it saves us from having to learn new things all the time.

Familiarity and Survival: The Lindy Effect

Familiarity and Survival: The Lindy Effect

The Lindy Effect teaches us that what has been around, will continue to be around. It is like saying, "What has been, will be." The longer something lives, the longer we can expect it to continue to live.

For example, if a book has been in print for forty years, we can bet it will be in print for another forty years.

The longer it survives, the longer it is expected to continue surviving. So, if it's still around after a decade, it will probably be around for another fifty years to come.

Understanding Time-Tested Ideas

Understanding Time-Tested Ideas

  • Knowlege has a half-life. - Focus on reading basic ideas that have stood the test of time.
  • Useful knowledge = broad-based multidisciplinary education of the basics.
  • These ideas last a long time. - By last, they mean mathematical expectation.

Combine these concepts to better understand them.
