The poet and the scientist resemble each other in that both are aware of the immensity of the unknown. The scientist is more fond of clear answers, the poet might try to hide the clear answers he finds by changing them into symbols with his magic. The poet believes the secret must be preserved, meaning the answers he has found should not be juggled and broadcast. The scientist wants his answers but he has no illusion that he or any scientist after him can significantly diminish the regime and rule of mysteries. The poet if he is politically minded, political in his art as it reflects the real concerns of his soul, must then find out how to do politics while remaining mindful of this unknowable, this in itself is a difficult art, the most difficult art is that which is both truly political and undeniably art.
