Mr. Griffith,
The issue of consistency is far from decided. Check out the Godel
Rosser theorem and 70 years of extensions.

As far as physical reality is concerned, the equations that appears
to describe our universe look very different and are hard to reconcile
depending on whether you use a quantum or relativistic description.
I'd say that the nice neat desciption you seek pretty much only exists
in k-12 texts.
