 |  But The World Is Non-Axiomatic !  | Yes. But there is no way to apply logic unless we hypothesize some pseudo-axioms. The only difference between this and mathematics is that in science we must accept that the so-called "laws" of physics may be only conditionally correct (or possibly even completely incorrect, in light of our goal of figuring out the "ultimate" truth about how the universe works).     | |  But The World Is Non-Axiomatic !  | Yes.
