A shorter description

found sleeping in
An introduction to Kolmogorov complexity and its applications
by Ming Li and Paul Vitanyi
with apologies to Francis Bacon

A random universe
is with overwhelming
probability not
compre(hen)sible. Must
hope that our part of it
forms respite, an oasis
of regularity
in a patternless whole.
There as giants lay dozing
under the hills, we may
uncover axioms of
nature from a small and
contemptible distance.
