Ockhams Razor - the principle pronounced by the English theologian and
philosopher Willam of Ockham (c.1285-1349) that, other things beings equal, the
simpler of two explanations is to be preferred. The Latin is entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem - entities
are not to be multiplied unnecessarily.
