A double-blind study is truly doubly blind:
First, because it thinks it's in control;
Second, because it's in too much control,
Masking viscera with the face of mind.
Being's neither linear nor lined;
Cause and effect are interactive; the whole
Disintegrates divided into parts; the goal
Must be with more humility defined.
One sees by flashlight; variables unknown
Cannot be controlled; 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.
