Summary/Abstract: Based on the presupposition of conceiving abstract entities as never-ending results of construction, the present article aims at developing a view of truth that is focused on degrees of probability. They are defined as series of moving relations between similarities and differences, i.e. as time-dependent. Time itself is analyzed through the usual concepts for modal categories, from where certain critiques of linear re-presentations concerning the flow of consciousness within the framework of past, present and future seem relevant. A case is made in favor of simple ontological objects and their respective grasping as simple ideas, that helps to contribute towards some perspectives for nominalistic explanation of s.c. “negative facts” which challenges the „before”-vs.-“after dichotomy” pertaining to time-consciousness with a final hint that it seems appropriate to think the future not as something actual, but as something that has already (albeit “only” in a virtual manner) somehow “happened” (now being a “past-as-future”).
