a big order

In the book "The Character of Physical Law", Feynman says:

Some people have used the inconsistency of all the principles to say that there is only one possible consistent world, that if we put all the principles together, and calculate very exactly, we shall not only be able to deduce the principles, but we shall also discover that there are the only principles that could possibly exist if the thing is still to remain consistent. That seems to me a big order.
Now what is meaning of the colored text, please? Thank you.
