These statements, and many more just like them, can be combined and condensed into a larger, more cohesive, understanding via metaphor.
Levels Of Awareness Extracted From English Fairy TaleOver-complication, “this bed is too hard.”
Oversimplification, “this bed is too soft.”
Perfect explanation, “this bed is just right.” Try to explain the universe in terms of rhythm and music and some people can feel the groove, others have trouble getting in sync with this logical approach. Try to explain the Universe in mathematical terms and it's too hard for some and too easy for others. Use words and numbers and it's just right. Trying to explain algebra to a child is rough; but wait until they're ten and it's easier. Why? Accumulated learning of concepts in the current language of the culture.* As we progress through levels of understanding, the once complicated, becomes just right, then, after a while, too simple.
In other words, when we encounter something too complicated, that means we need to learn more in other areas and at earlier levels of the topic and often in different languages and metaphors before we can grasp the specific thing we find too complicated. The Universe is simple, just right and complex. Life is a growth process of learning and understanding.
Of late, we have been tricked into thinking learning is the same thing as optimal understanding. It used to be, but not so much so during the Age of Fish & Dog (Jackal) aka Dark Age Fog. As a result, we have been learning, but understanding in place (similar to running in place). We are stuck at the Goldilocks level of awareness. In one version of the story, Goldilocks was a child; therefore, it was the child's level of understanding she settled into. This was appropriate for her which is why she liked all of Baby Bear's stuff. Time for Goldilocks to grow up into the double truth. Life is a dynamic dance requiring continuous adjustments of moving out of what is too easy and into what is just right and into what is too hard. This is an ongoing process that allows us to keep moving through levels of awareness. Just as the physical body moves through levels of growth via continuous process, so also must we grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually by continuously maturing in understanding in the process of becoming unified in consciousness of self and all else.. Each bear's porridge, chair and bed were just right for them but not just right for the other two bears.
At some point in the lifetime development of each Bear, what is too simple, too hard and just right will change and switch places as the next step in healthy growth and development takes place.
Language Expansion* Our spoken/written language is a form of the language of the Universe. This is the language we teach and learn by; however, if our spoken/written language is alienated from the millions of other languages in the Universe, our understandings will be limited to our culture, thus extremely small and void of significant understandings. This is why the Ancients in Africa incorporated animals, planets, insects and other parts of Nature into their teachings. Our language may be just right to get us started, but if that's all we rely on throughout life, and we do not perceive or use other languages (metaphors), then our cultural language will keep us in a Goldilocks state of mind. This is why we of stunted growth cultures lowrate Ancient Egyptian culture because we do not understand nearly as much as they did. The Three Bears woke Goldilocks up and caused her to get out of her comfort zone of just right porridge, just right chair and just right bed. Goldilocks had to get up and move on.
Additional ExpansionAs one of many examples, I often hear TV folks say, that's an oversimplification, it's much more complex than that. In this context the person is saying something has been left out, the explanation is inaccurate and the person doesn't know what they're talking about. This could be true sometimes, but sometimes not.
If someone understands something sufficiently enough, it is possible to reduce it to fit the space of soundbites of television and still be accurate. At the same time, someone hearing the simple explanation, who does not account for limited space available to explain something and the fence-straddling to avoid offending status quo viewers and sponsors or who does not understand the topic as much, could consider the statement to be an oversimplification. It depends on each person's level of awareness.
