    Nov 6 2011: One plus one equals two within the mathematical framework implied in the statement. It is unnecessary to clarify the context of one of plus one because assumingly most of us are already aware of the context. However, this is indicative of a relativity.

    There are absolute truths within realms, and there are realms in which truths are subjective. There are no truths which are absolute outside of their relative context.
