    Default What is truth?

    My benchmark is what the mainstream scientific peer review process has found true if I cannot test it myself. However, the older I've gotten, the more I feel surrounded by deluded fools. How can I trust anybody, even myself?

    truth is bigger than any of us. so it's something to intuit rather than something to try to fully define and comprehend. it's most important to me to find my place within the truth. i think about truth often, and believe in it. but i don't think any one human can understand the fullness of everything.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    This resonates with me, esp the bold!

    That makes sense, as our perception is limited to only here and now, and even then it is flawed.

    You are surrounded by deluded fools. Trust no one and question everything. If your beliefs can't stand up to scrutiny, they're probably wrong.

    Whether you like it or not, and how much you do or not, it will almost always come down to you.

    No matter what you believe, you can always find some "research study" to back it up. You can spin almost anything.

    But what we believe and how we feel about the world ALWAYS comes down to personal experience.

    Truth is always variable. If we see a tree we only see the reflection of it and the picture that is processed in our brain. We have to believe that what we perceive is really there and not just an illusion. So, basically that means that we should be open to almost everything and not see anything as the absolute truth.
