Philosophy of Truth

“One of the major branches of philosophy is EPISTEMOLOGY. Epistemology translates as the study of knowledge. Among the problems addressed in Epistemology are the structure, reliability, extent, and kind of knowledge we have; the meaning of truth; logic and a variety of strictly linguistic concerns; and the foundations of all knowledge, including whether real knowledge is even a possibility. 

Do you, the reader, recognise that there is no single objective truth, but rather that tere are a multiplicity of conflicting truths?”   

 -Marlene Simoneaux

Within complexity it is situational truths. With minimalist aesthetic it is common to accept the very first reaction as truth and subsequent reactions as less truth. This philosophy is questionable. With minimalist aesthetic there is only one truth. It is because it is. A thing which did not occur can be believed as if it did occur. This does not make it a truth. The application of science has showed us that waves collapse when they reach their limitations. Falseness is limited. Truth however permeates indefinitely because 'it is'. When asked can humans know truth the obvious answer is: yes, with exact degree by which they are willing to accept it over falseness. The complexity of discussing truth however has given rise to a comprehension of resonance. People are magnetically attracted toward that with which they resonate most deeply. In a culture of liars it is normal for people feel most comfortable believing falseness. Such are uncomfortable when faced with truth. The distinction between sharing comfortable falseness and accepting situational truths exists thinly.

With reference to Truth as the exemption of collapse of waveform of falseness. It depends very much over what timescale a truth is projected. Once we forget a circumstance it becomes irrelevant. While it is relevant the debate of its truth or falseness continues until we witness the collapse of the falseness, the revealing that it is such.

On a large enough timescale the complete history of our civilization will be forgotten. It matters not which child stole the cookies and lied or which thief robbed the bank and lied, which spouse slept with which neighbor behind which partners back. The truths of these matters which we so importantly build our lives around because the debate holds such power over us, until we let go of the issue. These truths become irrelevant a hundred, a thousand, a hundred thousand years later. What has permeated since the civilization of ten thousand years ago? Issues which were faced then and which we face now and yet have still not discovered any answer for. Perhaps this fuels our quest for what is truth?

And when we come to know truth, to align with that resonance, the change is fundamental.

"Now I'm feeling lost and confused, your thoughts kind of wandered of if different directions and some of them do not appear to have been completed."  -Marlene Simoneaux

You are wonderful Marlene. Thank you.
