—-”what Is the Difference Between a Fact and An Objective Truth?”—-

A FACT consists of a promise of a theory of an observation.

A TRUTH Proposition consists of a promise of a theory of an observable.

**|Universal Epistemology| : Free Association**(survived minimum relations for cognizance) -> **Hypothesis** (survived rational falsification) -> **Theory** (survived empirical falsification) -> **Law** (survived applied falsification).

|**Truth**| : A promise that the correspondence between the experience invoked in the audience by the statement and something observable: open to senses(physical), emotions(Intuitionistic), or mind(intellectual) – satisfies the demand for decidability (correspondence), given the consequences and demand for restitution upon ignorance, error, bias, or deceit.

In practice we use Fact for measurements or records of existentially observable reality, and objective truth is a ‘fuzzier term’ that attempts to include statements about language (verbalisms) and attribute to them the freedom of error, bias, and deceit of facts.

In other words, these terms are specific (fact) and loose (Objective) assertions of the absence of ignorance, error, bias, and deceit. We use the via positiva assertion “True”, meaning rather than the via negativa assertion “free of ignorance, error, bias, and deceit” for brevity and habit, despite the fact that the term true can and only can mean ‘free of ignorance, error, bias, and deceit given the scope of externalities of the question (harm)”. Because that is all it is possible to know.

As far as I know that is the best definition of truth that exists – or can exist.
