I hope very minor nitpicks make acceptable comments. I apologize if not.

In the section about Prerequisites, specifically about The belief in an objective truth, the example "is the color orange superior to the color green" does not function as a good example in my opinion. This is because it is not a well-posed problem for which a clear-cut answer exists. At the very least, the concept of "superior" is too vague for such an answer to exist. I would suggest adding "for the specific purpose we have in mind", or removing that example.

Happy Easter!
