And so on.

I believe it order to see reality for what it really is, you need to see beyond your own mind.
I do not see true and false as adjectives but rather directional signposts.

Mathematics is based on a set of rules.

A set of rules that we formed in our brains. Therfore mathematics can only be correct, based on the rules that we place on it.

1+1=2, because the rules that we have placed on mathematics, dictates that it should always equal 2.

Mathematics could have turned out very differently, if the rules had been altered in some way.

If this is the case, then give me a true statment that I can't possibly deny as being truthful.

Mathematics is based on a system.

The system is how we percieve it to be with our minds.

Without mind itself, there is no Mathematics.

The nautical term 'keep true' is still used in various colloquialisms to this day.

I see what you're saying, but I'm not sure if she was. I usually think of humanistic and Carl Rogers comes to mind. He would let patients speak and guide their own therapy. I think she felt that "good" and "bad" had a judgmental tone and wanted to stay away from that in therapy.
