What is it that is self-evident?

Only one thing: coherence.
There's no one thing that's true. It's all true.

With what does thinking cohere?

I grasp this truth:

self=other

Evident in correspondence. Now we are talking, even if we are not grasping the intention.

That we TRY is an acknowledgement of self-otherness.

S’good. heh

I am not quite sure what you are getting at. At first glance, I would say observation which might then form "proof".

I grasp this truth:

self=other


Christian point of view?

Evident in correspondence. Now we are talking, even if we are not grasping the intention.


Correspondence as in communication? :eusa-think:

That we TRY is an acknowledgement of self-otherness.

S’good. heh


I can see your point here in my own way. Open communication.
