Is the Universe Really Consistent?

Is the Universe Really Consistent?. The Scientific Method has allowed us to do awesome things, but this has come at a price we seldom notice. We rarely remember the hidden assumption at the root of all science — an assumption which was considered radical and improbable as recently as 300 years ago. Science works on the assumption that the Universe is consistent. And while the mighty works of Science remind us that this is not a bad assumption, Science cannot prove the Universe is consistent because it cannot really address the matter of inconsistent things at all.
