Depending on your definition of "absolute" proof,
math proofs may be absolute, for they make only specific claims which proceed from relationships between precisely defined terms -- in fact, all the universe's math logics could be as circular --as far as I know
-- or are you saying nothing can ever be absolute? Math, by can be absolute because it only makes limited claims.
A definition is an absolute. Yes, definitions
are conditional. Absolutes can be conditional
-- in fact must be conditional. . . or we would be talking about undifferentiated mush.
Therefore, an "absolute" is a sub-unit of relationships and relativity -- according to the definition I'm living with.
