"theory 1.a. Systematically organtized knowledge applicable in a relatively wide variety of circumstances; especially, a system of assumptions, accepted principles, and rules of proceedures devised to analyze, predict, or otherwise explain the nature or behavior of a specified set of phenomena. b. Such knowledge or such a system distinguished from experiment or practice. 2. Abstract reasoning; speculation. 3. Broadly, hypothosis or supposition. (from thea, a viewing)"

Dale Lake has presented for our viewing a system of knowledge complete with assumptions and facts. He predicts in the planetary part how we will find the orbits of planets around other suns.
He tells how to tune musical instruments to the math of his field theory. He proposes how to research the tuning of radiation therapy for cancer.
Yes, it qualifies as a theory. A good one? I have yet to know, or believe as the case may be.
