Simplest System

I am deep in my research! In fact I'm not so sure, if I should get too much philosophical or not, but I have a big question to answer.

What is the most simple system that you can think of, and why?

I think, the simplest system should not be something which was created or discovered later in the history! e.g. writing a text, is not by itself a simple system as it took many years for human to invent it. However you may say communication is an example of a simple system which consists of two entities and a function, but I doubt that it was the first system identified by human. You may also argue that the simplest system need not be the first one that was utilized.
