In general, the further one strays from simplicity, the further one strays from the truth. Perhaps a visit to the pulpit of Reverend Occam is in order.
lest we forget, here is what you said, "Quite the opposite, one can generally recognize truth by its beauty and simplicity."
You recognize truth through beauty and simplicity. That is subjective divination. You have no need of facts, reason, nor experience. In contrast, the scientist with whom you share nothing in regards to empirical analysis; requires facts, reason, and experience.
Oh, you are closer than you know by invoking "Occam", which is the translation of William of Oakham's name, an Englishman and monk.
