Okay, now make the same same statement, with the same truth value, without a reference to waveforms or length. Can you do that? I really like to see it.

(I'll give you a hint: if your answers is longer than the original statement above then you've failed already--you'd be making even more references and creating more context than you had before. Try to do it with less context and see how far you can get.)
