Do you mean to define what it means to be absolute, or to define something that I personally believe to be absolute.

Proving that acceptance of acceptance is absolute is a personal affair. You must prove it to yourself, the finger pointing at the moon is not to be confused with the moon itself.

That's the Liar's Paradox, and makes no rational sense, but I kind of agree (on a more broad, less specific, level).

Everything that is is absolute. Things often are not true in absolutely all circumstances, but things that are true are absolutely true in their circumstances. It is absolutely true that there is existence outside of myself.

Concept of Time/existence is absolute.
