Or, to be a bit more precise, if we are axiomatically ineffectual,
then we can only create an ineffectual FAI. To be even more precise,
the "ineffectuality" constrains us to occupy a universe where the
ensemble of FAI's we can create are ineffectual; a universe in which
we fail to create an FAI in the first place would meet this criterion.
