Sorry.  You called it a "totality".


Thanx, makes a difference. I consider a "whole" identified (maybe it is my
feeble English). Is it  an essential point:

No I am empathically *not* sure - but I agree with Darwin who wrote,
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is
those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert
that this or that problem will never be solved by science".

It is only your opinion that the inventory is *necessarily* incomplete.


Is it? try to compare our (cognitive etc.) inventories of 3000BC, 1000AD,
1006AD, and tell me which year did we reach omniscience?
