Laws of Conservation

Once upon my journeys,
I saw a mighty bear pop out of nowhere.
Unlike a companion of mine,
I retained composure and remained calm.
I grabbed my diary and wrote in an instant:
The number of Bears in the Universe
is anything but constant.

Stan Sýkora, Arese, August 1995
Part of the Perpetuum Mobile physics rhymes:
Originally titled Physicist en voyage, this one
underlines the exaggerated tendency of many of my
collegues to generalize ad absurdum on the basis
of even the flimsiest of evidences.
