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 k12 texts.
