The question of truth is approached in regards to the systems as a dynamical nature supported by that which is signalized as reality, defined as that which resists to all forms of negation. Truth is, thus, not derived from a set of statements within fixed frameworks schematized by categories and assumed as models that are imposed to the systems but, instead, a systems’ truth is addressed as a permanent making of the truth, from cognitive dynamics linked to the systemic identity, strongly connected with an ontology of alterity, as contraposition without negation of the same in the same, for systemic dynamics of integrity and permanence supported by dynamics of knowledge and information, necessarily connected with a sense of intentionality, which leads us to the notion of interval, approaching it as a gap available for the existence, for the others, all the others, for life and permanence of the life in the existence, with support in what are identified as dynamics of truth.
