Dear Roger,

I see the ONE as a superposition of Nothing and Everything... The Many is the classical case. /evil grin

Necessary truths are the only kind that can be known,

So weird.

they are conditional to context. Absence the specifiably of context even properties vanish and truths with them.

Dear Bruno,

"Necessary truths are the only kind that can be known, they are conditional to context." How is this weird? I think that the process philosophy seems very strange and distorted to you.

Why should a contingent truth be not knowable? That seems even more true with a process philosophy, but is true in all philosophy I think. Most of our everyday knowledge is made of contingent truth, like anniversary birthday, diverses facts in life, etc.
