## Main Question or Discussion Point

A region in the complex plane is said to be simply connected if any simple closed curve in the region can be shrunk or continuously deformed to a point in the region.

My question is: How can i understand the intuitive meaning of this definition without using the fact that the simply connected region has no hole in it? Please what does it mean that the simple closed curve is continuously deformed to a point?
