Hi Stephen P. King  

Necessary truths are never connected to facts,
because facts, being specific, can change.

I think there is a higher truth than the truth
of arithmetic, which I would call reality,
and this is simply the experience of "now"
subjectively.  Meditation teaches this.
Prayer teaches this.

Hi Roger, 

     It seems to me that is there are necessary truths that have no  
connection to facts in any way, then they are unknowable. I am just  
reversing that thought to define the relations between a priori and a  
posteriori truths.
