where [y.sub.i](t) [member of] [0,1] is the state of agent i at time t, Q [member of] [0,1] is the truth value, [[lambda].sub.i] [member of] [0,1] is the attraction strength of truth Q for agent i, and

Therefore, the unknown pattern Q, represented by a single valued neutrosophic set based on truth value is classified into pattern [P.sub.2].
Bornholdt analyzes Chatton's 14th-century treatment of the future contingency problem, that a future event has a truth value that is unknown to the present.
According to Peter (and Veronique) Eldridge-Smith, who originally formulated the problem in [2] and further elaborated on it in [3], the Pinocchio paradox is an improved version of the classical liar paradox, where any attempt to assign a binary truth value to the statement: "This sentence is not true" leads to the conclusion that the statement is true if and only if it is false.

From this perspective, the metaphysically indeterministic nature of future history gives rise to semantically defective discourse: unless a given aspect of the future is settled at t, that is, unless it is determined at t that that aspect will come about, any proposition describing that aspect of the future lacks truth value at t.
7.2 And by neutrosophic numerical proposition, a proposition whose truth value is a triple of numbers (or in general of numerical subsets of the interval [0,1]), for examples A(0.6, 0.1, 0.4) or B([0, 0.2], {0.3, 0.4, 0.6}, (0.7, 0.8)).
There may, of course, be a number of "naturally occurring" processes responsible for the generation of reactions to the truth value of a statement (e.g., social processes and factors may be involved); however, it is certainly been demonstrated that the past conditioning history of the individual does appear to play a role in this process (Tomash & Reed, 2013b).
The focus is to ascertain the truth value of the proposition in focus.
