I would include any theory which can be expressed as a nice little bundle of
axioms. (Re: Goedel - Marchal is the expert in this subject so I'll defer to him
for the details - I am still waiting for his explanation of G* but he can take
his time....) I think that Relativity and Quantum Physics are included. But
OM??? Do you mean QM? Quantum Mechanics? I don't believe the Plenitude can be
encapsulated in any finite explanation. No matter what explanation one could
come up with, one could go on to the meta level and ask "Why?"........ or "Why
not?" The monster White Rabbit is staring at us in the face.
