Occam’s Razor often cuts far too quickly. It’s a nice “rule of thumb” – to make things simple but not too simple, but I don’t think it deserves a rule of law but rather a nice idea to consider.
Look at what would’ve happened if Occam’s Razor was applied too soon to the field you’re in? It wouldn’t exist.
Yet, pursuing a “complexification” process ended up revealing a nice simplicity (concept of spin).
So, I don’t know what to add, but I wanted to say that I enjoyed reading the different “ways to get there”.
