Making art is making decisions.
It's not Reason's job to 'help your brain with this "problem"' -- it's your job as an artist to commit to your own decisions.
do you think a novelist sits down and says "so many words, so many possible grammatical structures to arrange those words into sentences, how can I get any writing done!!!???".
But isn't "helping our brains with problems" the reason we buy computers? Who gets to decide at what moment hand-holding in user-interface design is no longer needed?
computers are there to help us with those problems, yes, but it’s still a valid point.
to your earlier comment about needing to commit to a plan of action and set of tools in advance, in order to keep things simple, well that’s not true at all. I’ve got about the most haphazard, free-formed process you could imagine, but I still manage to keep things simple (for the rare projects where it’s called for). like m.arthur says, it’s all about the choices you make. BUT, if formulating a plan ahead of time works for you, that’s all that matters in the end.
