I think so.
I also think all absolute statements have to come with assumptions based on existing beliefs... so therefore yes... everything is relative.
The sharpest I can define Truth for myself is: " what is".
But then the underlying assumption is " according to me".
So are you a physicist?
No, I just had the idea that the off-topic lounge would be a great environment for a deep discussion. Anyway, does the statement "everything is relative" account for gravity? If a person doesn't believe in gravity, does that person float away?
