"Speaking just for myself, it’s more about figuring out which things I’m okay with the audience not-getting, remaining a quasi-mysterious source of depth and nuance to the experience, and which things must come across."

You sound like Ronald D. Moore.

Just saying.

I'm being a bit cautious about this, because it is a slippery slope. Nevertheless, I think there are certain things that an audience gets consciously, and others that they get unconsciously. Clarity is important for the former, but the latter is more mysterious, as you say, but nonethelsss extremely important. It is often where the resonance lies. What I would say, however, is if the conscious stuff is unclear, then the audience never quite gets to the unconscious, because their mind is trying to figure out the basics.
