Why don't you go over to Q&A and tell them the good news. No need to learn anything anymore. The others are now responsible to make everything easy enough for them to handle.

Call me arrogant, but most juniors are idiots, more in the original greek sense of the word. I prefer helping them to overcome this (if you believe the ancient Greeks) natural state of ignorance and gain first experience in some area.

It always was the job of architects and seniors to make the code as complex as needed and as simple as possible. That's only one aspect of maintainability. Maintainability is the real goal, not dumbing down at all cost. If that means herding the juniors into a meeting room and giving them some training, then so be it.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
