The proposition "I have five fingers in each hand" and the proposition "I don't have six fingers in each hand" are both about the same (and unique) fact? This is a correct interpretation?

Or would be the case that each distinct thought (a mental state) resultant of the experience of the world, is a distinct fact? In this sense, seems that we have two facts in this situation.

Or would be the case that a fact is a linguistic construction? Here, seems also that we have two facts in this situation.

(Great topic).

Best regards.
