OK. So…. In the end, Testimonialism is not all that complicated.

Sensibility (intelligibility) and logic consist of constant relations.

Constant relations provide commensurability. To say two statements are commensurable and consist of constant relations is a tautology.

Dimension: a series of terms (states) consisting of constant relations, organized in a scale – preferably from lower to upper limit.

Language: Language consists of descriptions of all phenomena by intersection of dimensions. (yep). All languages develop paradigms of constant relations.

Paradigms: Paradigms can consist of relations correspondent with reality, correspondent with ideals, correspondent with myths, or correspondent with occultisms (experiences) – and less. Some paradigms are more correspondent with reality and some less, and some non.

Definitions: Definitions by dimensions: definitions in series (deflated) in operational language, illustrating constant relations.

We describe counts, distances, areas, spaces, changes in space, equilibrial forces and changes in space, all the way up to pure ‘meaning’ consisting of a handful of constant relations across statements, sentences, paragraphs and narrative. *and those relations are all open to analysis, and enumeration*. We know this because english is constructed as a high precision, low context analytic (not a low precision high context synthetic) language whose dimensions are well understood ( and limited in number). Great complexity emerges from the combined interactions of a small number of root causes.

0-Point (Referent)(Identity, anchor referent)(quantity)
1-Line (Distance)(Relations)
2-Area (Ideal)(Sets)
3-Object (Ideal Object) (Space)
4-Time (Velocity) (Change)
5 – N – Pure Relations
6 – N vs. N’ Relations, (Forces) (Equilibria)
7 – N vs. N’ Intermediate Relations, (Symmetries)
8 – N vs N’ relations between symmetries (Paradigms)
9 – (N vs N’)’ hierarchies of symmetries ad infinitum. (Reality)

And we have mathematical techniques for such dimensions.
0 – Correspondence (referents, identity)
1 – Positional names, Arithmetic, Accounting.
2 – Mathematics and algebra (Ratios)
3 – Geometry (Space)
4 – Calculus, Finance, Economics. (Change)
5 – Algebraic Geometry (Math of sets of constant relations)
6 – Physics and Economics (equilibration)
7 – Lie Groups, (Symmetries, Externalities, Future of Economics)

Operational Prose = constant relations (commensurability) between by universal measurement of possible and subjectively testable human actions. Operational prose forces constant relations with reality. Man is the measure of all things testifiable by man.

Logical and True = Preservation of Constant relations across dimensions..

Decidable = Decidable with the information present without appeal to information not present in the statement.

We will need to organize dictionaries by those constant relations. So future dictionaries will be closer to the organization of a thesaurus. (or rather, will combine the two).

Such dictionaries will require the falsification of some uses of terms as ‘colloquial’ or ‘out of range’ definitions because they violate the dimensional series.

Many(or at least some) terms consist of the intersection of multiple dimensions will have to be modified to specifically falsify conflation.

Our contracts tend to make use of global variables.
Our contracts do not require definition of all global variables (although some attorneys are better than others).
Our contracts often require limits.
Our laws require neither definitions nor limits.
Our laws do not require construction from first principle of reciprocity.
Our definitions do not require proof (construction from constant relations).

More later…
