Theory vs. Method Compatibility

From Encyclopedia of Scientonomy

What is the relationship between the Compatibility Criteria for theories and for methods within the same Mosaic?

The currently-accepted Zeroth Law states that all elements of a mosaic must be compatible with each other. However, it is not clear whether compatibility for theories, and compatibility criteria for methods, must be the same or stated separately.

Considering the Mechanism of Method Rejection and Mechanism of Method Employment currently accepted, it might be possible to state compatibility for methods strictly in terms of compatibility for theories, even though the formulation of Zeroth Law might imply otherwise. This is further justified by the fact that which compatibility can be understood relatively straightforwardly when comparing theories, but comparing methods for a notion of compatibility is much less so.

In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Christopher Kaumeyer in 2018. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.
