When describing simplicity and how it relates to other adjectives -- , crude, elegant, sophisticated, complicated -- I've used an automobile engine crankshaft as the subject. A crankshaft is simple. It's a singular item, a heavy chunk of metal, that spins on an axis and translates angular momentum to linear momentum and back again. Its integration with the rest of the engine is basic. Looking at it, it's not very impressive. But it is also very sophisticated, having very tight material and machining tolerances, and strict balance, strength, and harmonic requirements.
