What is the appeal of minimalism? For me, it seems to represent a state that is the opposite of CLUTTER, which is a form of ENTROPY. Nature naturally tends towards entropy so the minimal is in fact opposing nature, and actually represents a higher energy state. This can also be equated with a spiritual state. To live in a minimal way is in some ways an unattainable goal, which is precisely the appeal. Minimalism is equated with order itself.
