Veritas in brevitas

The truth can usually be said concisely. Now the ever expanding internet with more and more contributions by technical laymen has given us a large library. This means that the truth - what is that anyway? - drowns deeper and deeper into the ocean of utterance.

By truth I mean a theory which can describe real phenomena. The rest is ... anecdotes.

For the Argentinian (blind) poet JL Borges the library is the labyrinth/maze in which the truth can be found. Funnily enough Borges wrote mostly short stories and comments.
