Abstract: Work-in-progress talk about some recent ideas about a new possible-state semantics for intuitionistic logic and its philosophical interpretation. The interpretation is based on the idea of primitive states representing concrete (material) findings (a concrete proof or a concrete counterexample as written down by a mathematician, a concrete scientific study confirming something, a concrete scientific study falsifying something, a reliable witness in court etc), what is established by them, and what can be concluded from a bunch of them.
