Understand the simple and the complex becomes unravelled

This works in two ways. This is the first:
Today's advances is based on the works of others that came before us. Their works, from our standpoint, are simpler and more basic. Today 'original thought' and 'new ideas' are looked up at . But if we take the time to look closer and learn more about that what we praise about, we will find traces of other who came before us. What seems complicated and novel are merely the next iteration of something else. If so, why do we look down on the efforts to understand what was?
How often we go around looking for new solutions when all it requires is to continue the works of others?
The second
We are often obsessed in finding new ways to solve 'new' problems. A solution often seems to be the race for the next more complicated thing or way. Rather than gain an understanding of what we are facing, we rush towards a solution without understanding what the real problem is. The fear of complexity drives ignorance. In turn, ignorance dismisses the simple as simplistic. When it all it takes to understand the problem is to understand it's basic form and adding layers of complexity until it becomes familiar.
