Is non-linearity incontrovertible? What about hidden variables?
Some systems are said to not obey the superposition principle. This is because certain relations are found which are not arrived at by simple addition or subtraction. However, I wonder if some "non-linear systems" can be modeled directly from an underlying set of linear equations. Now, I don't assume that such a set of equations would be finite. One must somehow generate such equations, though not necessarily by using a system of non-linear equations. Is it possible? If so, can such a process theoretically apply to all non-linear systems?

You can always approximate a non-linear system by a sufficiently complicated linear system. Is that what you mean?
