Ultimate Sophistication

so·phis·ti·ca·tion | noun \sə-ˌfis-tə-ˈkā-shən\

  1. a : the use of sophistry : sophistic reasoning
    b : sophism, quibble
  2. the process or result of becoming cultured, knowledgeable, or disillusioned; especially : cultivation, urbanity
  3. the process or result of becoming more complex, developed, or subtle

This is the Merriam-Webster definition. When I think of sophistication, I imagine someone with beautiful clothes who is well-versed in many topics, articulate, knowledgable about good food and drink, and deeply kindness and generous.

Another view:

simplicity_sophistication

Now I imagine someone unattached to physical things, who lives in small spaces that are spare but inviting. A lack of neediness. Lightness. Contentment. Cultured, knowledgable, and subtle. More than anything, contented.

What is your ultimate sophistication?  Does simplicity fit?
