I am a python beginner and noticed that True + True > True
Do True and False have a different meaning in computer logic than in life? Or should I consider this same statement as true in life?

I think this is a strict programming scenario where "True" is treated as a variable, and not in any philosophical way. For example in VBA "True" is equivalent to -1, while False is equivalent to 0. Other programming languages define "True" as 1. If that is the case with Python, it follows that 1 + 1 > 1.
In Philosophy, True + True = True because Truth is not a divisible value.
