Corrections inserted here to the following paragraph of my previous post. (Apologies for the sloppiness.)

Eric Hawthorne wrote:

so truth itself, as
a relationship between representative symbols and that which is (possibly) represented, is probably a limited
concept, and the limitation has to do with limits on the information that can be conveyed about one structure ("e.g. all of reality")
BY another structure (e.g. a formal system which is itself part of that reality.).

Clearly an embedded structure (e.g. formal system or any finite representative system) cannot convey all information about both itself and the
rest of reality which is not itself. There is not enough information in the embedded structure to do this.
