I don't think it has anything to do with accuracy or being right. Of course it needs to be right. He know that. I think it is just Einstein's whimsy.

One of may favorite. "The thing that drives me hazy, is it me or the others that are crazy".

It means don't over complicate things nor make them too simple to be functional or accurate.

Oversimplification leads to inaccurate or even totally wrong assumed results and it's a huge problem with many of the scientific things as they are presented (wrongly) to the average uneducated public in order to fit a false agenda or narrative.

I think what he was saying is, " Everything should be made simple" for you to understand, " But not simpler " for me to understand. :p

Read an Einstein paper then read a contemporary paper.

Einstein's theory of relativity was mentioned in a book titled "Writing to learn" by William Zinsser as an excellent example of writing well for the average person. Zinsser also suggested to write across the curriculum.

About twenty years ago, I convinced an Auto Mechanic teacher to work with the English teacher where the student wrote a technical piece from the auto mechanic teacher to grade on the technical aspects and the English teacher would grade on the rules of English composition.

Contrary to popular belief, writing isn’t something that only “writers” do; writing is a basic skill
for getting through life. Yet most American adults are terrified of the prospect—ask a middleaged
engineer to write a report and you’ll see something close to panic. Writing, however, isn’t a
special language that belongs to English teachers and a few other sensitive souls who have a “gift
for words.” Writing is thinking on paper. Anyone who thinks clearly should be able to write
clearly—about any subject at all.

Yep. Simple things can be made simpler to a point but when something extremely complex starts getting huge variables and unknowns falsely factored into or out of the end resultants that's where problems come about.

Many of our larger social and cultural belief systems have this failing when oversimplified. Kind of like cutting down the forest to get a better view of the trees then declaring its a desert in the end because there's no trees. :oops:

Depends

X + X = 4
2X=4
X=2

That is petty simple
If you have to calculate:
2(X+X)=?
It's easier to know that X + X = 4 than X=2

When I write this I think about the number of elementary instructions for a controller to do this operation.
