Hi Dick,

I can only hope you don't get weary of these line of questions, but I feel that I am getting closer to the core of your thoughts (why I didn't do this much earlier leaves me dumbfounded):

(T or F):

1. A statement such as "I think I am correct" is entirely SC and *not* a tautology, therefore it cannot be validated or thought of as accurate or approximately accurate.

2. Any particular non-tautological statement of reality is no more accurate (or approximately accurate) than any other non-tautological statement. This is even true for non-tautological statements that some may label religious or scientific in nature.

3. Tautological statements are understood by the SC.

4. Tautological statements are unique because they are simple enough that the CS can comprehend them the moment they are presented to the CS.

5. "Nothing is certain, not even this" (a quote from an ancient Greek skeptic).

* There's gonna be more questions, that I can be almost sure.

Warm regards, Harv
