So if there were no beings, there would be no untruth, and so truth would be irrelevant.



    There are all kinds of common language meanings of truth btw.

    Not imagined just misprecieved.

    It doesn't matter if there are a million common meanings only one idea of truth is correct.

    Note my edit that there are several definitions.

    Mispercieved. Which requires a being to perceive it.

    All that means is that fallible beings are required for falsities to exist, not for truth to exist.

    Yes, True. A good distinction.

    Theoretically. But it is still irrelevant if beings do not exist.

    Truth is intellect conforming to the subject: that's essentially what I said.

    Good quotation btw, @Ginkgo. I'm going to save it.

    What about it? It is defining truth as answers to questions. Not as multiple impressionistic answers to questions that can't be solved.

    Only if you think beings are the definers of value. Why does the universe lose importance if it loses us?
