A double-blind study is truly doubly bind:
First, because it thinks it's in control;
Second, because it's in too much control,
Masking mirrors with the face of mind.
Being's neither linear nor lined;
Cause and effect are one, not two; the whole
Is not the sum of separate parts; the goal
Must be with more humility defined.
One sees by flashlight; variables unknown
Cannot be controlled for; nothing is
Isolable; each moment is unique.
Yes, statistics help, but they are prone
To hide what might be missing. Scientists quiz
The world and get the answers that they seek.
