In this sense these words have no meaning whatsoever, this applies to everything in life which also makes the word complex baseless as it is subjective to what people find simple or not.
What i am getting at is this: Does complexity exist or is it soley based on what reference point we use, in a human case the dicrepency between the 'elite' the 'average' and the 'dumb'?
