Shall I judge the either/or scenario law-of-excluded middle you present against the inherent limitations of language to end up with a vagueness of meaning that all eventually fall into and render communication difficult?

It’s always mistruths, particularly when pretending to state truths

I don’t think in your world of “truth/not truth”.
I think in the world ontologies or glossaries. Within the context of music, absolute has a particular usage as a word.
Within the world of mathematics, absolute has a particular usage as a word.
They are similar and HAPPEN TO be the same sounding word but their meanings are not the same, they are only with family resemblence.

I don’t know what truth is and have abandoned its search decades ago.
I seek reasonableness which is always vague at the edges and often in the bulk as well, although I strive for as much precision as I can given the inherent limitations
