Throughout investigative history,
a basic principle has long held sway:
When we unravel Nature’s mystery,
complexity’s the first to fall away.
Upon one underpinning postulate,
succinctly balanced, we’ve come to expect
all facts that we’ve observed should always fit,
with math that’s both appealing and correct.
Proposing supposed significance,
unless our models of the world can stun
with simple, beautiful magnificence,
rejections come before explanation.
If cumbersome, try a new avenue.
Prevailingly, it’s elegance that’s true.
