"Any problem in computer science can be solved with another level of indirection." David Wheeler (1927-2004) (Attributed in: Butler Lampson "Principles for Computer System Design. Turing Award Lecture." February 17, 1993. This has been called the fundamental theorem of software engineering.) Wheeler is said to have added the appendage "Except for the problem of too many layers of indirection." (Wikipedia)

This is the classical and famous "The Indian Problem" of Henry A. Loveday, 1845, starting what later became the Logical School, see Herbert Grasemann's "A cleric's idea, which made history" which was lately reprinted and updated (by Eisert and Rehm, Editions Fee=Nix, 2014). See also the articles in wikipedia de, fr, lt, nl, uk on "Problème indien".
