Let me try a (rather) short explanation.

Maybe I can say that it is about organizing things creatively. Math is one example. It can be very easy to use, but inventing some parts of it was not. The power is at the hand of both skilled and unskilled users (some of them making bridges, aeroplanes and atom bombs). They get that power from the seed planted with creative thinking about some seemingly difficult problems. That seed growed up as math.

You do not have to be a genius to use math, but the invention of it was surely an amazing thing.

Math is a powerful tool for thinking. Yet it can be very easy to use. The secret behind that is the organizing of thinking that math made possible.

Sorry, Lennart, but this is not an explanation, either.

I tried, Eli, but it is obviously not an explanation for you. So I have maybe a hard time to understand how to explain things to you.

If you can explain how to make a
tool with thousands of buttons easy to use, please do.  For starters,
how does one decide _easily_ which sequence of the thousands buttons
to press?

Just show the important buttons more clearly.

That is the way math does it.

And btw, I don't agree that math can be very easy to use (although I
use it every day).

If you frame the system where you use it clearly enough I think it is easy. The difficult thing is more the system boundaries.
