>"All statements of truth are embedded in a frame of reference."

Which descends into 'all statements of truth are non-releasable' and this (as a coherent sentence) I suppose I must go along with, if only because these are _statements_ of truth, embedded in a language by sheer existence at the git.

But better I like "Any statement is true in its frame of reference" because _any_ map will have borders and _any_ (even the adroitly arbitrary) map can be drawn. Just ask Brett.... Ask that INTJ on the windowsill....

I have never considered this statement in any of its forms to be a fibonacci (virian maxim), as there is no observational simplicity to it.

Fibonaccis are derivations from nature. There is no language in a flower's petals. Its existence is a fact backed up by the entire universe. (Washburn, in case no-one knew....)

Better I'd like to see 'Consciousness is embedded in evolution.' It gives us all something and someplace and somewhen to look for. And a virian maxim should be a place from which to explore. Not a frame with no exit.
