II 67
Belief/world/truth/falsehood/Russell: the need to allow falsehood. That makes it necessary not to construe the relationship of belief, or opinion to the world as a relationship of consciousness in realtion to a simple object: otherwise one would conclude that - like in the case of acquaintance - no opposite is possible, but it must always be true - instead, the relationship must be complex, since a single object is not believed, but just e.g. seen - otherwise one would have to adopt objective falsehoods as a simple objects - Solution: e.g. "A loves B": here is the love one of the objects.
