@The Pentacle Queen,
To define truth in terms of work limits truth to the definition of work. I believe work is too limited for a definition of truth. For example, if one doesn't tell the truth, a lie, a lie is something that sometimes works.
When we speak of truth, truth is a synonym for right. Right can be defined as if a subject is within an extrinsic subject. Often the extrinsic subject is the field beyond language. Using this we can differentiate right with truth. We then can think of truth as if a subject is within the field beyond language.
