Truth applies to proposition, or sentences representing them for
some machine/numbers. If not, comp does not even makes sense.
So your are agreeing? "Two" has no truth value, but "Two equals one
plus one." does.
Yes I agree. It seems I insisted on this a lot.
But in this context, it seems that Stephen was using this to assert
that the truth of, say "Two equals one plus one." depend on some
numbers or subject having to discover it, or prove it.
