Parody of Paradoxes



The string theorist

Your hypothesis is nice,
my dear,
but it can’t be validated in any way
for it’s all far too theoretical.

You leave no place
for experiments,
rather you wrap yourself
in analogies and terms of logic.

Please tell me,
is this science
or rather pure

You seek for understanding
by what the world
is held together
in its innermost.

Your hypothesis
is indeed nice,
even elegant, makes sense somehow,
but deep down?

You can’t describe anything exactly,
but maybe
that’s our world;
just a universe of analogies…

The fractal universe

What if
our universe
can be put
into one simple equation?

What if
the equation is so simple
that it would
blow our minds?

But why appears everything
so completely difficult
and complex?

What is complexity
supposed to be?

Let me tell you
about the illusion
of complexity;

What we observe
is just a part
of the whole.

But could you recognize
the entire picture
if you only saw
a few pieces of the puzzle?

My dear,
complexity is just
dependent on the observer…

If you were able
to see the entire picture
you could indeed say
that it’s simple.

But we are here on earth,
yet our minds are able
to wander across
all these hidden dimensions…

We just don’t know
in which direction
we should go.

The mathemagician

The mathematician
is indeed a magician
for he plays with numbers
like they were some kind
of juggle balls.

He speaks the language of the universe,
the language of logic;
Speaking in analogies
he combines equations
like the chemist combines toxic elements…

– they are the words
of logical thought,
are capable to tell stories
about the universe’s very first days.

The mathemagician’s passion
is to find analogies
between analogies,
just like the writer
searches for metaphors…

He searches for understanding the cosmos…
In dialoque with the universe
he begins to wonder and wander
across the ocean of infinite possibilities…

Fervor with measure,
passion with exactness,
that’s the ultimate of mathematics;
Connecting the details
to create the big puzzle…

Holistic thinking
clashes together
with reductionistic thinking…
That’s when the details coalesce
to one big picture.

The mathemagician loves riddles,
is as fascinated like a child discovering something new.
Nothing can stop the mathemagician’s curiosity
from finding out
by what the world is held together in its innermost…

and fascination;
that’s what drives him
– almost crazy…
