Irene asked

What about virtual reality? It exists and doesn't exist at the same time. Therefore, it's true and false at the same time, no? Or since hate sometimes (often, really, it's all so unconscious) masquerades as love, love can be true and false at the same time too, no? For that matter the relativity of the word 'truth' can make it true and false at the same time. Yes?

A modest suggestion: states, feelings, emotions, and even words themselves are neither true nor false. Those epithets are reserved for statements, propositions, judgments, and the like.

But enough metaphysics.
