Elegance is an indicator of coherence. The danger is being seduced by an artificial elegance which then constrains the chaos of truth seeking. In this case elegance, or the attempt to achieve an artificial elegance, blinds the thinker.

On the one hand we must value elegance, on the other we must be willing to accept an elegance that transcends our ability to discern patterns. Chaos is apparent, but not necessarily absolute.
