Why does refactoring make code simpler?

Last week, I wrote about methods with consistent return values, and how they’ll make your code simpler. But how does that happen? Why does the right refactoring make your code easier to work with? What makes good abstraction good, and bad abstraction bad? I mean, you can’t just blindly rearrange your code and end up with quality software. If you can learn why these techniques work, you’ll be better able to understand where your code needs help. And you’ll be able to use the right tools where they matter the most.
