The Mystic Scientist (a paradox
It seems) is one whose sight and insight
Complement each other to outfox
The wily Universe and see it right.
For neither mode of knowing can reveal
The whole of what exists exclusively:
One way’s to calculate, the other feel,
And both combined disclose Reality.
While observation gathers all the facts,
Methodically arranging what it finds,
Deep intuition spies what rigor lacks:
The underlying order of designs.
The Scientist may formulate the whole;
The Mystic, though, can penetrate its soul.
