Orchestrating “Irreducible simplicity” in science and science communication: Positioning “irreducible simplicity” as a vital guiding principle for effective and bona fide science

This paper, which is perhaps our umpteenth and umptieth on scientific method and scientific methodology, proposes, discusses and lays bare the canon of what we propose to call “irreducible simplicity”. We believe and hypothesize that this approach would encompass, and play a natural, pivotal and a vital role in all aspects and facets of scientific activity from the cradle to the grave such as grounds-up hypothesis conceptualization, hypothesis building, detailed hypothesis specification, hypothesistesting and refinement, and structured and effective science communication to the masses, including people from different cultures and different parts of the world. We also review the various and varied steps in common scientific method and methodology, and also review various canons such as the canon of simplicity, the canon of economy, the canon of parsimony, the canon of efficiency, and the canon of efficacy. We also compare and contrast this concept with the concept of “irreducible complexity”; the latter is widely held to be a pseudo-scientific concept, and does not fall within the parameter and radar of bona fide, beneficial and healthy science. We also explain and discuss why this approach would invariably and inevitably catapult and propel science to a higher trajectory, amplify and magnify science communication to the masses, with ample just rewards for the common man, and for science and scientific activity in general.
