CINDY: An analytic statement is a self-contained truth.
"All triangles have exactly three sides" is an analytic statement.
A synthetic statement, however, is one where the proof of what has been said is external to the statement itself.
CINDY: Validation of a synthetic statement requires observation of the world beyond the statement.
"All Tricorn-Class Battleplates are triangular," for instance.
TAGON: I'm pretty sure they are all triangular.
CINDY: But if we square off a corner on just one of them with my main gun, they won't be.
TAGON: That is not how we're breaking in your main gun.
