|Timelessness: sentences such as "The door is open" are not unambiguously endowed with a truth value (true / false) as long as more precise provisions are missing. By setting the time and place, such a sentence is made timeless. A corresponding timeless sentence is therefore true at this time and at all later times when the door was open at this time. See also truth values, interpretation._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
