Truth
    #4300233 - 06/15/05 06:10 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

My Truth is mine and You can't prove otherwise because Your Truth is yours.

The Truth is something else entirely, and doesn't matter because Our Truth always comes first.


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Seems true to me...however it's arguable that perhaps the truth doesn't exist. We as a society and a race have our consensual truth, as you said. But that's just one potential version of it, reality could be very different. We can prove things relatively, according to our consensual truth, but not absolutely, according to THE truth.

Of course that leads to thoughts of epistemology, and possibly solipsism, although I find MOST of solipsism silly.

Well that's just it: I think that there is a "THE Truth" which exists separate from any of us...but I also think that this Truth is entirely unknowable to mere mortals such as ourselves. We can only ever know our own private version of "THE Truth".

So "THE Truth" doesn't even matter.

If these truths are different one of them is obviously not true.

Truth exists regardless of humans interpretation of it, and regardless even if humans exist or not.

Wait so then how can you speculate that such a penultimate truth exists when you just said that it's impossible for us to comprehend it. Also, what sort of thing would this truth be? A higher power? Some knowledge?

One could say that THEIR truth is in fact, THE truth, and for all we know, they might be right. However, everything that is perceivable is relative. Really, the only thing that we can be sure of is that we are capable of perceiving something, and often do perceive things, or imagine that we do. We call this phenomenon life.

How do you know? That's a pretty brazen assertion. This again goes to epistemology, the example of does an object continue to exist even if nothing is there to perceive it?

Although, THE truth (if there is such a thing) is probably not any one object, so the above example is irrelvant. If there is such an existence, then it can only be recognized if there are humans to recognize it. Otherwise it's just another potential floating around out in the void.

Of course not. The truth is the state of the universe and beyond. Its not a person place or thing.

"How does it become "potential floating in a void"?"

I'm not too sure where I was going with that...it was just a thought that I had on my last trip, and it's pretty much undeveloped. Basically I thought of everything as a potential, with some potentials being realized and then that object existing...or something like that, as I said I don't know where I was going with it, lol.

:lol: good answer  :thumbup:

I think we have different definitions of what truth is,  thus different ideas of its nature and how it manifests itself.

According to who, you? You have no say in Universal matters :smile:

I've found that it's absolutely retarded to look for things that don't exist. Truth is intangible, quit looking for a fairy tale.

If there is no absolute truth, then that fact becomes absolute truth.

which is both a contradiction and completely human. Nothing is Absolute. Nowhere will you find "truth". I might as well say truth is a purple people eater or a unicorn.

Saying nothing is absolute, is an absolute. You cant avoid it.
