The "world" of necessary logical truths is much larger than
the "wrord" of phsyically possible universes, which is much
larger than the observed world (the only
one that deserves to be written without scare-quotes).

The question is not whether there is a world beyond even
logical possibility, but why the observed world is so much
smaller than the Platonias. Matter answers that easily.
