When I say “thesis,” I’m not saying “theory.” I’m saying “my thesis.”
When I use the word “theses,” I am referring to a specific kind of knowledge.
I am saying that I am the creator of that knowledge, which is a unique kind of information.
If I say, “I’m going to do a thesis” in a way that includes a thesis, I am not saying that this thesis is a thesis.
It is the truth of my thesis that I have created this knowledge.
