“Thus the question of complexity seems from one point of view a simple matter of scale.

The more closely you look, the more detailed things are bound to become.

Increase in one dimension (focus) increases the other (detail of data).

For example, comparative questions that appear interesting at a distance,
on closer inspection may well fragment into a host of subsidiary
(and probably more interesting) questions.

Complexity thus also comes to be perceived as an artefact of questions asked,
and by the same token of boundaries drawn:
more complex questions produce more complex answers.”
