Explanations must be general. The boundary of B' must contain as many of the x's (5) as possible. As many events as possible must be explained. If you understand architecture and the rules of physics you will be able to build a variety of structures in a variety of situations without any collapsing. Einsteinian physics explains more than Newtonian physics. The principle of reinforcement is one of the most general principles of psychology. The more phenomena covered and the wider the range the more general. As was presented there are two types of errors on the rules sides and two types of errors on the results sides. Clearly having no errors on either side is best. But given that there will be errors, science attempts to optimize its task. The idea is to explain the maximum number of phenomena
