I’m sure you can cook up different scenarios that might require this sort of distillation. Something with the most bounce for the ounce.
The best one I’ve read comes from Richard Feynman when he was presented with the challenge of compressing modern science down into one sentence. He said:
“All things are made of atoms, small particles moving in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they’re a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another.”
From that one sentence you could start reconstructing science as we know it. If you needed to.
I prefer prose to poetry; but in a way, using the fewest words to give the most information can be like a form of poetry.
