Origins in the french language
A words that fits into every subject
Difficult in its understanding
Ubiquitous in expressing

The word random
Etimology in randon
Usage not random
Meaning do we fathom ?

A subject on its own
A theory explored by many
Headlined under statistics
Also in Metaphysics

Statistical meaning
Makes it interesting
Equal chance for happening
Each one involving

Complex the data
Solution in Formula
Solved the data
Another requires another formula

Without rhyme or reason
Any events causation
Theres no correlation
Tying together causation and correlation mankinds biggest problem

Unfamiliar and unspecified
Person or deed
Arbitrary without a corollary A method in its madness innate quality

Applicable to thoughts
Where it default belongs
Traveling without destination
Not governed by the power of the conscience decision

Random existing naturally
Probability man made theory
Anything undefinable makes man uneasy
Oxymoronic activity the theory of probability

Probability makes it easy
Vistas opened for the theory
Wars won on this capability
Predictability in the unpredictability

The structure of Universe
Answers so diverse
Einstein had his calculation
Philosophers call it revelation

Stay in the present
Mantra for great achievement
Thought process not defined
Isnt that path also refined ?
