I don't see, why not. A super intelligent (and super honest) Newton had to admit, that something yet unexplained is happening, since the Sun is shining, flowers are growing and so on. He had an unfinished job, to come up with a plausible theory of the whole environment. The Theory of Everything would be his next task.
What is the most simple way, I can explain everything I see around? Maybe I'll have to device some experiments to see, how they fit into my picture. I'll fix the picture, if need be.
I suspect, quite a narrow window on this world is enough, to understand a lot of it. Newton as he was, was most likely able to predict, that the planet Mercury rotates very slowly, if at all. He needed only a lot of (subjective) time. To suggest an experiment or two maybe, also.
