Once Upon an A Priori…

To formulate a statement that reduces a universal domain that includes myself and my thoughts or statements, to one or more factors that affect truth-value domain-wide, I must nevertheless transcend that universal domain so that I can make that factor-exempt statement itself, as well as any factor-exempt arguments that I might want to offer for that statement.

Undercutting your own position is never wise.Otherwise, precisely because everything including the reduction itself is by that reduction’s own assertion subject to the effects of those truth-limiting or truth-changing factors, that reduction cannot be true merely in and of itself as a statement within the predicated domain that nevertheless makes a general statement about it.
