Yes, Local Times theory does not consider the problem which particles
are fundamental or not, nor predict which particles should exist. It is not a
theory fundamental in the sense of usual physics.

Unfortunately I am not familiar with Eddington's discussion. Could you
explain it for me? It is difficult here to get books famous in US and Europe.
