      Human understanding is limited, and therefore, by necessity,
      any 'theory' of existence must be 'claiming' more than it can justify.

      A question: do you think that the above already shows that any
      attempt to increase one's awareness of one's existence must be
      useless and a waste of time? In what way can a theory 'claim'
      anything? I suppose Descartes' methodology is 'overoptimistic'
      because it >claims< results [it claims to be the way to the Truth by
      imposing restrictions on the way of investigation]. But in what way
      to other kind of discourse 'claim' results?
