An equation like 2+2=4 is purely abstract. Absolute truths exist in abstracts all the time because we define the axioms of their universe. What's more interesting is whether absolute truth exists in reality.

I know I exist. That's an example of an absolute truth in reality

I know my sensory experience exists. That's a second example.

I'd bet my life on the fact that logic is also an absolute truth. Without it everything is incoherent. Like I can't be A and not A at the same time. That's nonsense. I'm not sure of any logic proofs though.

I know combining axioms I define with the laws of logic create more absolute truths (assuming logic is an absolute truth). 1+1=2, no married bachelors, etc.

but everything else is only our best guess.

So if nothing is absolute true, does that mean 2+2 is not 4?

I'd argue it's impossible to know the nature of anything. But it's not impossible to know no absolute truths. Your own existence is a famous example of an absolute we know

If there is no absolute truth we couldn't know anything.

I know I exist because if I didn't I wouldn't be here. And I know the universe exists because I'm inside something

I don't assume I exist though. I know I exist.

I also don't assume the universe exists, I know it exists. I just assume the nature of that existence.
