I am on the fence on this one. If you can’t explain to a 6yr old what your phd thesis is (especially hard sciences) – then you probably can’t explain anything. I generally find it exasperating when ppl start explanations with “It’s complicated…”. At the same time, whether one like it or no, the simplicity of the “Ten Commandments” (wrt agrarian soc.) is commendable.
