The Science Behind Minimalism

Even though the term “minimalism” wasn’t officially introduced until the ‘50s or ‘60s, its distant origins can be found throughout history in different religious groups from Buddhism to Christianity. The well-known practice of renouncing possessions for the sake of spiritual gain puts forward the core principle of this aesthetic – reducing material belongings in order to gain in the more important areas of life. Later, minimalism appeared in art and design, so it could then become a widely accepted lifestyle. Its mantra – “less is more” – in the cluttered modern environment has become a matter of discipline and priority, as this lifestyle takes time, dedication, and serious personal introspection.

Emoticons are becoming so influential in everyday conversation that they have become a serious topic among linguists. It seems as if we’re traveling back in history, or maybe making a full circle from pictograms to hieroglyphs to phonemic lettering and now slowly but surely back to pictograms.
