Your statement, which makes reference to nothing outside the realm of Platonic forms, doesn't seem to be in a frame of reference to start with, or if it is, then the frame is so big that it's hard to see where it ends. If you take "A=A" out of the context of syntax or logical operators, then not only is "A=A" not a true statement, it's not a statement of any kind. It's just a bunch of lines on the screen.
