    Default Love or truth?

    Luckily we can have both, but if you could only live for one or the other, which would it be and why?

    You mean romantic love, or fraternal love?

    If it's between romantic love and truth I'd choose truth.

    But if there could be no love between people (no friends etc) then I'd have to ponder more.

    That's difficult. If there is no love in any form, then I don't really see a sense in life anymore. On the other hand, when I choose love, then I know there is no truth. And when there is no truth, isn't love then fake too? I couldn't appreciate fake love with the knowing that it is all fake. So I would choose truth.

    If the scenario would be that I forget the choice I made after I made it, it would be a more complex question. I wouldn't know my decision later, so I would either not know if truth is really truth or I wouldn't know that fake love is fake. The latter world is more easy to live in, but the question is if I could choose that choice in the decision phase? Difficult...

    Love, all the way. Truth is irrelevant. I don't care if God exists, I don't care if the Big Bang happened, and I really couldn't care less whether there's aliens in outer space or not. :3 I think things like evolution and the Earth orbiting around the Sun are true, as well as water being made of hydrogen and oxygen, but if none of these things were true, it'd not bother me much, as long as the love between "my people" and myself remained true. :3

    Of course it if it didn't it wouldn't be a problem so long as we continued to believe that it was true even if it wasn't...

    I think I try to live for truth already but if I could get all my functions balanced out how I'd like I'd, in theory, prefer to live for love. Or at least for a love.

    Truth, of course. Understanding is the ultimate satisfaction.

    I'd have to go with Love.. However, in my mind, Love and Truth are not as separate, so they go hand in hand at the fundamental level...

    brutal honesty.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Love. Truth is easy - the truth is that one day, we're all going to be dead, and who wants to live for that?
