Simplicity according to the Log Lady

Recently got back to the Twin Peaks series, I was struck by this quote form the log lady in the seventeenth episode:

"Complications set in--yes, complications. How many times have we heard: 'it's simple'. Nothing is simple. We live in a world where nothing is simple. Each day, just when we think we have a handle on things, suddenly some new element is introduced and everything is complicated once again. (...) "What is the secret? What is the secret to simplicity, to the pure and simple life? Are our appetites, our desires undermining us? Is the cart in front of the horse?""

Why do I blog this? just found this quite intriguing to think about, especially considering the whole discourse about simplicity and design.
