Elegance: original meaning "select with care".

The new abilities we acquire with computers will kill elegance.
Elegance is forced simplicity because we cannot handle the complex.
Maybe we see elegance because we can't see it otherwise.

The smarter you are, the less elegant you have to be. The more elegant you have to be, the clearer everything looks.

I would hate to believe everything looks so beautiful because we are stupid. Perhaps computers will make the world a very ugly place.
