First off, there's some confusion how to spell it. Occam's or Ockham's.

Since Medieval English philosopher and excommunicated Franciscan friar and philosopher named William of Ockham, in the 14th century, is credited for the concept of Ockham's razor, Ockham it is.

(Occam is the Latin spelling.)

But what is it?

Well, the razor part means cutting absurdities out of arguments.

Ockham wrote, "Pluralitas non est ponenda sine neccesitate" or "plurality should not be posited without necessity." 

Which means:

One should always choose the simplest explanation of a phenomenon, the one that requires the fewest assumptions. 

The modern version is: keep it simple stupid.

It's difficult to believe that someone didn't think of it before, but the Englishman developed a fundamental principle of modern thought:

"Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily." 

Which also sounds very impressive in Latin.

But simply means, when the answer is apparent, don't keep looking for something else.

Many scientists have adopted or reinvented Ockham's Razor, which probably violates the rule itself.

However, when Isaac Newton restated the rule it was okay:

"We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances."

Stop thinking. It's not that complicated.

But humans, being what we are, are constantly searching for new ways to muck it up.

"If you have two theories that both explain the observed facts, then you should use the simplest until more evidence comes along."

According to Ockham, the simpler it is, the more preferable it is.

But nowhere does he assert that the simpler explanation is always more correct than the complex explanation.

There may be parsimony in logic, but it's not logical that parsimony works.

Atheists, for example, use Ockham's Razor to support their belief:

Saying there is a universe is simpler, than there is a universe and a God that created it.

I'm all for keeping it simpler.

Not that sure about simple.

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy” notes that Occam (or Ockham) was the most influential philosopher of the fourteenth century.

Take any subject today. Gay Marriage. Healthcare. The economy. The NFL playoffs. Academy Awards.

How would the "Razor" apply to cut through the clutter?

While humming a little Francis Sinatra's version of My Way during my morning prayers I came across the other Saint Francis' words: "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible." Being cool hand luke means making it look simple by using some of Papa H's grace under pressure. I am going to shave today with Occam's razor but will still use my Schick. I learned from my wife and my mom that making a nice home looks simple but there is ongoing work and constant planning and mother hen resolve to protect the rest of us to make it be that way. I guess there is theory but truthfully the right thing is usually the hardest thing and the most rewarding.

Skywalker - That is exactly my life's philosophy...."If it is worth doing, then it is worth doing well." From cooking breakfast to sweeping the porch, or whatever a person undertakes, the simplest task to the most complex should be done as well as humanly possible. Not to be a perfectionist or OCD, but just dedicated to doing one's best efforts. It is another expression for being conscientious. If everyone did that, there would be no trash along the highways, no auto wrecks, and no crooks in Congress. If simple, but so ignored by so many.

Hazel -Pray, tell us more about your browsing the Plain English Campaign.

ChefDeb - You are right on the definition with "If it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, and looks like a duck, then it is probably" So simple and so true. ( I thought of that phrase when I watched Hillary testifying.)

On yesterday's subject, I have always  loved rain. The reason, I think, is rooted in my Father's true belief that idle handsespecially those of a child,  were the devil's workshop. The only time it was permissable to be idle was when it rained. Proverbs description of a sluggard were read to us regularly with emphasis of the fact that idleness, however slight, was sufficient to qualify as a fullblown sluggard. At age eight, i had read about something called a Union in St. Louis that had negotiated a contract with management to the effect they didn't have to work when it was raining...raining being more than three dros per hour. My brothers and siuster anmd Is were assigned to pull weeds out of the orchard so they didn't sap the food value from the apples A spring shower sprung up and our  hopes were dashed because Dad wouldn't let us get out of it. As the oldest, I tried to lead my siblings in a work stoppage. Thankffully it didn't work as evidenced by the fact that I'm alive and writing this. Its good not being a sluggard.

Well, Moose~ since you ask and there seems to be little else going on in the Village - The Campaign for Plain English started off as a campaign, not to 'dumb down', but to de-mystify the forms we had to fill in for numerous services. They seemed cunningly designed to make them beyond the cognition of anybody but a devious civil servant hell-bent on denying you whatever was being applied for, on the basis that you had failed to fill in the application correctly. This was way back in the days before on-line everything with its attendant frustrations. The campaign was a great sucess, annual Awards are given for Plain English documents, on paper or on-line. There is also good-natured amusement over the verbal gaffes of politicians and other high and mighty. This year, in deference to 'hard times' there was no grand award ceremony, but awards were given in a similar way to what Peterman used to do.

So what’s the big deal about gray marriage?  You’re probably thinking, “What do I, Rosanne
Rosannadanna, know about gray marriage?” So let me tell you about my Uncle
Norbert.  He was 73 years old when he
first got married and his wife Aunt Doralee was a 68 year old virgin.  He might have been a virgin too, there’s no
telling but they both had gray hair. Uncle Norbert didn’t have a lot of hair
but what hair he had was grey. Aunt Doralee dyed her hair red for the wedding
and Uncle Norbert took some black shoe polish and rubbed it over his head the
night before so his grey hair would be black. 
The red dye she used was on sale at Walgreens and she bought that instead
of the L’Oreal dye that all the movie stars use. When they said their vows at
the wedding, Uncle Norbert looked young, virile and dapper except for his baggy pants and the round
part on the back of his head where he had a big black dot inside of his bald
spot and it looked like somebody had painted a bull’s eye on his head but he
couldn’t see it because he didn’t have a mirror when he applied the black shoe
polish to the top of his head. Aunt Doralee looked young and sexy in her white
gown and her veil was shiny and beautiful except where it started to turn pink
around the edges when she started to sweat because it was a hot summer day and
the fans in the church weren’t working and she was all nervous and tense and
angry at Uncle Norbert because she saw how ridiculous he looked with the shoe
polish bulls eye on his head. So all I’m saying is they would have been a lot better off
if they had left their hair alone and just had a normal gray marriage like any
other two old people who are going to spend their honeymoon playing
shuffleboard on a cruise and the rest of their married life trying to get out
of each other’s way when they get up in the middle of the night to use the
facilities, if you know what I mean.  It’s
just like my grandma Nana Rosannadanna always used to say, “If you gotta put shoe
polish on your head you oughta just stay in the closet. Good night, my little Rosanne Rosannadanna.”

What on earth are you lot on about? We had a family friend who was honoured with the name Uncle Bert Monkey as he entertained us kids by waggling his ears - I've tried and tried and I still can't waggle my ears. His eardums were perforated in some wartime explosion, so he was able to blow cigarette smoke through his ears - all very fascinating for young kids. He also had a pianola - a piano that had a place in it's innards where you put this scroll of paper with holes in it - you pedal away at the piano and, hey presto! it plays music all by itself. Let's go pick up Uncle Bert Monkey and his pianola, he'd enjoy the club car.

Anyway, there they are, smiling vaccuously, fluttering their eye lashes and waving their hands vaugely at the weather map, telling us to "wrap up warm" ......

I take heart from seeing the snowdrops and daffodils defiantly thrusting through the frozen soil, promising that Spring will be here soon.

Hey Park4,
I'm afraid my route mapping abilities floated up to the milky way when our gigi  galloped off to the sounds of wolves calling, to the stars that blanket us at night.  But do not despair, for when the stars shine the brightest, your are seeing the past you long for.

TheSepia, which will take you anywhere, to anytime you so wish, can be guided by those passengers that still have magic in their soul, which can be witnessed by looking deeply into their eyes just as 'truth is found in the eye of a horse' simply closing your eyes and entering a wakeful dream that will guide the mighty beast of imagination to your destination.

Since THE Sepiatrain is filled with it's own strong and loving magic, there is no room for such trite things as coin-operated mirrors and such.  Maybe on Metra, but not this ship of dreams.

I will be sure to load some extra coal 'cos it seems like wonderfully far fetched plan have been loosed.

I will be certain to greet Hazel's now famous Uncle Monkey at his station and lead him to his Guest of Honour throne in the Club Car.  Floyd will be sleeping at it's foot, ready to spring into action and be of service.

I do hope to get a preview of him blowing smoke out of his ears.  I too can ear wiggle, but only one at a time.

Meanwhile, i will either be sleeping 'round the corner of the cabooses porch, or strapped to the cow catcher, directing the movement of the onrushing air by moving my arms like a High School Band conductor to smooth out the journey.

Wish for somewhere, sometime, very special, and you will arrive when you all are ready to.

Peace out

Hazel - My pet peeve is people saying "laying" when they mean "lying" as in "The book is lying on the table," or the dog is lying on the porch." There is such misuse of the verb to lie, meaning to rest ( check out any song, especially country songs and you will find the verb consistently misused and emphasized!) that most people do not even know the correct form to use.

You left the broom lying on the floor, or the cat is lying by the fire, or your shoes are lying on the rug, NOT laying!!!ARGH!! Sorry to rant, but you asked.....;-)

And he shugs like 8 year olds shugs, "I dunno" - and he did it again.  My daughter and I were hugely impressed at her offspring's talent, and we sat there in the living room looking at each other, closing our eyes really hard to . concentrate . on . wiggling....but nothing happened.  Again we tried, we scrinched our eyes and concentrated - and nothing.  Grandson watched and said "You two will never get it."  I think he's right about that, we won't.  But I am in awe Southsider, I tell you, I am in AWE.

PL:  creator of thesepia train, you gave the best description of how it is was ought to be as I've ever heard up in your 7:32.  You have me in tears, my friend.  She did ride off into the stars, she was one to go her own way, and a wolf howl was to her a siren sound.  I'll find the longed for and well remembered past when the stars shine brightest -you read my heart.  She and I agreed on much, but first and foremost we agreed on the bestness of you.  thanks dear PL, thank you so much.
