No, they are just ways of influencing an agent. Truth is local. You don't need
to posit absolute truth to influence a computationally bound agent into making a
less than optimal decision. You simply need to lie effectively to it.

And isn't the idea that all we can rely on are effective procedures a throwback
to reductionist debates of a prior century? ;)
