Give Me A Third Category: Trivially True

Hi Paul,

I'm glad to see you are still active.

I need another category besides true or false. I need a category called 'trivially true' to distinguish it from true. True by itself suggests that the statement has more implications than just the statement's content. Trivially true says that the statement's content equals its implications. Let me try and give you my reply with this third category in place:

>>>1. Thought happens.>2. A thinker is one who has thoughts.>3. A thinker can produce thoughts by imagination.>4. Thoughts can change.>5. Time elapses as thoughts change.>6. A thinker can know some thoughts that have happened.>7. A thinker can imagine past and future patterns of thoughts (i.e. remember and predict).>8. A thinker can imagine symbols representing some thoughts.>9. Words can be assigned to some thoughts.>>15. A thinker can influence that evolution by imagining specific "random" quantum interactions.>16. A thinker cannot know the origin of the thinker.>17. The origin of the thinker can be the subject of thought even though it is unknown.>18. A thinker can assign the term G.O.D. to the unknown origin of the thinker.>19. A thinker can think about the implications of this list of statements.>20. A thinker can speculate about the nature of G.O.D.
