Principle of plenitude

The principle of plenitude asserts that the universe contains all possible forms of existence. The historian of ideas Arthur Lovejoy was the first to trace the history of this philosophically important principle explicitly. Lovejoy distinguishes two versions of the principle: a static version, in which the universe displays a constant fullness and diversity, and a temporalized version, in which fullness and diversity gradually increase over time.

I wonder what the difference to plentitude (https://www.thefreedictionary.com/plentitude)
both defintions refer to plenty, but neither is listed as a synonym of the other.
Isn't it possible to say "a region blessed with a plentitude of natural resources" (?)
Although I suppose it is wiser to say "a region with a lot of natural resources"

Is my attitude toward the lack of plentitude at this altitude really rude?
