"I always tell the truth, even when I lie"

The truth (in this case) is pointing to "as it is".

This proposition "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" asserts understanding about different range of boundaries:

- "when I lie" = "a particular of something is asserted"

- "tell the truth" = "assert something as it is"

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" = I always tell the truth as it is, which is one of them is "when I lie (I lie about something)" = "when I lie" is part of the truth = "when I am lying about something then i am doing something as part of the truth, which is lying". It asserts "membership".


"I always tell the truth, even when I lie" asserts:

1. Contradiction ('I always tell something which is relevant consequences, even when something itself is irrelevant consequences"), OR,

2. Implication (Lying implies something else). It asserts consequences whatever it is (as fact, axiom or hypothesis)

3. Related to essential understanding that "a truth is anything as it is". It's universal-particular proposition, membership and similar to these (Lying is part of the truth since the truth is anything that exist including "lying"). In this case there is no paradox.


I'd rather categorize this proposition "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" as no relation to paradox. It's not paradox.

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" equals to "I always tell the truth, even when I lie, because any kind of lying is part of the truth (as it is lying)".

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" is related to "I know that tell a lie is part of telling the truth".

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" is related to "I know that to do anything (including lying) is part of the truth".

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" is related to "I know that telling about something (lying) is one of the things we can do (within boundaries)".

- "I always tell the truth, even when I lie" is related to "We can do to the farthest extent (truth) which is one of them is lying".


THE POINTS ARE:

"I always tell the truth, even when I lie" is related to "SOME OF THE TRUTH IS LYING":

- OR, from different point of view: "I confess that I lie" is goodness, and the goodness is part of the truth, therefore confession (that I lie) is goodness (in this case part of the truth), BUT "A LIE" (part of the truth) itself is not a goodness.

- "The truth" in this case has no equality with "not a lie".
