Can truth be understood as math?

Could Truth be understood as the theorems of human knowledge where basic facts are its axioms?

∃Facts ⊆ Human_Knowledge ∃x ∈ Language(Human_Knowledge) (True(Facts, x) ↔ (Facts ⊢ x))

Facts are subjectively known.

Which facts you are privy to is a question of luck.

Even if you had all of the facts, the principles (theorems) would be based on subjective interpretation. (i.e. Just because a hypothesis fits, doesn't mean that it is the only hypothesis that fits.)

Please explain your maths.
