I think the ones who say that AT doesn't exist are making an
extremely strong claim that requires serious backing up if you
define AT as I have (being the inseparable companion of OR). If
they define AT as a description of OR formulated in English (or
some such language) then the claim is not particularly strong.

I think that you defined TT (or my understanding of it) fairly
well and concisely. I can't recall the exact wording but it went
something like "the property of objective reality that is
consistent". I'd say this is part of my AT but AT also includes
more mundane information such as the fact that I am less that 8
feet tall. Perhaps TT is simply physical laws.
