Do You Know The Truth?
    #969410 - 10/17/02 04:19 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Since I couldn't get an answer in this thread, if anyone out there knows the truth, please post it here.

Thank You,

Evolving

If I knew, I wouldn't be asking. It's something to do with Enter's proselytizing and some biblical mumbo jumbo, something to do with the 'after life' and probably what some would term 'the ultimate truth.'

You want the truth? 

You can't handle the truth! 

Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg?
I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

You don't want the truth because, deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line.

I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said 'thank you' and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand at post.

Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!!!!  :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

If you are sincere in your request, and I have no doubt that you are, I do know something about the Truth. I have created a thread called, "Truth?" to lay the foundation. Currently at the end of it buttonion had brought up Godel's axiom and I haven't post a reply to it.

As I said, I do know something about The Truth but remember everything I know is subject to change with the inclusion of new data.

Your request is a general one. Is there something specific that you want to know?

Cheers,

I've finally figured it out!
I'm the only one who's real and the rest of you are an evil entity who has tricked me into believing this is reality.  Okay, the gig is up, I've figured you out, :mad: so let me the fuck out of here......

i know some of the truth, not all of it.

i know that i dont like many people cause they act like robots.
i know that the truth stretches beyond words
i know that truth is a feeling, not a visualization
i know that life goes on forever
i know that evolution exsists
i know that the point of evolution is to evolve into masters
i feel that life is beautiful when you follow your heart

I know that I'd throw up if I went to a bar with enter.

I probably wouldn't even have to drink....

Truth?

I agree. The truth is to vast and complex to explain in words. Is it even possible to understand the whole truth? I dont know...there is only one thing i DO know, and this is it:

I am your reflection. I am you, but in a different situation, experiencing a different experience, and under a different setting. We are all the same, at our base. we ARE one mind. We are all fractals of one divine source. Fractals upon fractals upon fractals.

"What am i but your reflection, who am i to judge or strike you down"

"I love you, and in doing so i love myself. Because we are all ONE"

This is what ive come to know as "True". Though i ALSO know that "Truth" is plural.

Sorry about the goofing. I didn't mean to kill this thread.

Are you still serious about wanting to know the truth?

Cheers,

Why else would I be 'here' seeking explanations that make sense?

In an infinite universe everything is true or hasn't happened yet.As soon as you confine it to a finite realm it becomes subjective and can be interpreted in many ways.From a purely human point there is no absolute truth only grey areas of experience. Only when the human merges with the infinite can truth be a constant.Peace WR :wink:

Well... I like this:
there is no absolute truth

Reminds me of a dog named Dirk (4th post).

I will tell you honestly Evolving, I do 'know' a few items of truth. I have every intention of sharing them as the time goes on but they are not the sort of thing I can post in a few threads. If you really want to know you can stay and learn what I know. Always remember that whatever I know is subject to revision with the inclusion of new data.

And I am learning as this forum continues.

Cheers a true seeker, Evolving,
