Hi Stephen P. King An interesting insight. Hmmm.
I may have to disagree with you, possibly because no one arithmetic statement is the whole truth. And comp needs a whole set of equations, no one of which is the whole truth. But I think that EVERYTHING comes from the One, even untruth. Necessary truth is just a subset I think. So is contingent truth.

King There are many definitions of truth (see below): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth I like Whitehead's, which describes contemporary politics: Whitehead Alfred North Whitehead, a British mathematician who became an American philosopher, said: "There are no whole truths; all truths are half-truths. It is trying to treat them as whole truths that play the devil". The logical progression or connection of this line of thought is to conclude that truth can lie, since half-truths are deceptive and may lead to a false conclusion. Hi Roger, I am a massively huge fan of A.N. Whitehead. ;-) You might make sense of my fight with Bruno given this alternative, non-Platonic, way of thinking of Truth. -- Onward!
