Truth Value

Truth value is a number… a percentage of the truth in what is measured…

There could be a person who knows 100 things, while others know a million. But this person’s knowledge could be 70% truth value. While if everything he knows could be part of everyone’s knowledge, and yet the everyone’s truth value could be as little as 2-3%. A simple math problem…
