There is only one form of "absolute" truth. Once two people agree that a word will stand for something else that they have agreed on, then, the *fact* that that word stands for (whatever it is that it stands for) is absolute truth in the context of the situation. This is called truth by definition and, so long as the agreement stands, that truth is absolute.

Words have no meaning at all in and of themselves! The meaning is *understood* by the communicators.

Think about it --- Dick
