You are causing confusion by asking how the truth of a statement is
separable from any claim of that truth. But claims and statements are
the same thing - so of course they are not seperable. Bruno is saying
that the claim/statement is NOT the same as the fact that makes it
true. "1+1=2" is a claim; it's the claim that 1+1=2. And that's a
true claim; it's true that 1+1=2 whether you claim it or not.
It is not about me or any other single individual, it is about the
mutual agreement on the claim by many individuals, any one of which is
irrelevant to the truth of a claim.
