Death To Stuff, Part 2

Some other perspectives on stuff.

Merlinn Man tackles the topic:

“Ours is a culture based on the idea that whenever you run out of space, you should just pull up stakes and move five miles west. Then you can be happy. Is it any wonder that we seek organization rather than deletion as the solution to an overwhelming problem?”

Three cheers for deletion.

Paul Graham weighs in:

“Humans constantly scan their environment to build a mental model of what’s around them. And the harder a scene is to parse, the less energy you have left for conscious thoughts. A cluttered room is literally exhausting.”

Three cheers for minimalist decor - and closets and drawers, for hiding away the clutter.
