A Miniature Treatise on Experimental Metaphysics

Experimental, Descriptive, Metaphysical Typology

4. What is an advanced theory? A construction.

* Grand-Unified Theories of Meaning  e.g. with a goal of predicting n-dimensions of typology with descriptive importance.
* The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit focuses on systematics.
