Eliminating from the mind all belief in logical impossibilities is the essence of wisdom. For example, the belief that things can objectively exit.
It is definitely more than nothing. The "something" that is left over from the elimination of all these "nothings" is reality.
I will explain it again latter if I need to.

-Absolute knowledge is indeed defined to be knowledge that is necessarily true in all times and places. It isn't something which is merely true in somes places and not others.
-The understanding of absolute truth can only appear in the mind, while the absolute truth itself necessarily applies everywhere.
For now take the example of 3+2=5. I don't think it is necessarily true in all times and places. The understanding of 3+2=5 may be true in all times and places (under the conditions for the understanding to be possible). But the absolute truth itself does not apply to 1+3=4, 1+3=4 is not 3+2=5. Being that it is only an absolute truth where 3+2=5.

In what way?
I mean that you can do something illegal, not sure if it is a 'legal-self contradiction'. Like if one is married but act legaly as a bachelor and married.

If we decide marriage to be limited in space one can be married in one place and a bachelor in another.
