Why wouldn't the *whole* of such a Plenitude be truly superfluous to
any reality? According to Bruno's recursion theory argument, most of
the stuff in the Plenitude is useless junk. *Someone* (somebody
bigger that you or I ;) has to decide what is the good stuff. The
good stuff IN *all* of the Plenitude, not just part of it. This is
what I mean by being in charge of it.
