Truth

My understanding of the truth, or truality, says that it is dynamic in nature because it moves from one piece of information to another. You see, in my world the truth never stays the same, or its effects move onto something next in line. I suppose I could also call the truth ‘The Truth Train’ as it is always picking up and dropping off different ideas at each stop. But to understand everything properly, I must first take a step back from conventional wisdom and see what a fact is since this is what I usually compare it against.

Facts are a credible source of information of the past that are set in stone. They are an accurate impression, representation or trace of a historical event. However, what I have noticed so far is that a recollection of these events can be easily viewed or interpreted differently, i.e., either from the perspective of being stuck in old conjectured light, or from that of a new light that has just opened up to me. In which case, I get a clearer view of an impression that I hadn’t seen before. Ideally, I want to minimise any distortion between the actual impression (record) and the observer (myself [with optimal filtering]) to gain greater insight into life.

Also, some of us play games by adding information to distort a fact. Or else we deny, deflect and suppress the relative ‘new light’ knowledge from getting thru and shifting one’s perspective. Actually, it’s a common practice that I’ve now called ‘professional conjecture’, and it has undoubtedly plagued humanity since the beginning. It definitely hasn’t stopped in today’s world. If anything, it’s much more crafted in a deeply rooted way of life. Despite this ever-improving ability to manipulate facts, the nature of a fact remains unchanged. Simply put, a fact is the concrete record of a physical event or phenomenon, one that is provable, demonstrable and in many cases, even tangible.

Now let’s get to the truth which is regardless of fact…

When a piece of knowledge is worshipped, cherished or deemed sacred or important for any reason, regardless of whether it bears fact or not, it transforms into truth. And within this sense of truth now comes another sense, or territory, which also gives me a strong connection to others who share the same wealth along the same line of thinking. Plus, if I look at all the major truths that I have held onto in my life, I can see how they immediately became a part of my identity.

With the power of the truth in my voice, my tribe and I can fend off any other ‘inferior untrue ways’.

Admittedly, there have been many factual and non-factual blocks of information in my life that had once gained and then lost the truth title. But why? It was because I found something else that stood out stronger. The energy immediately transferred across to a new or more refined set of ideas.

During each transfer of the truth-tag from one thing to another, I felt my empowering sensations lose grip, only to then feel them grip onto something different. In fact, these feelings of the truth were absolutely the same, but it was the words, symbols and objects that had changed their content or became completely rearranged. Also, a byproduct in the form of a newly obsolete boring truth or an outdated piece of knowledge, in an ever-growing book of them, started piling up. Sure… some of these things may still be true, but they are now meaningless truths.

As I continue to unravel my conjectured world, I see that many people’s truths collide from angle to angle — info to info. It’s a non-stop information war out there! Therefore, my truth is never fixed on any single piece of knowledge. It is not found within the set in stone fact. Rather, if anything, the truth is located deep within the eye of the beholder through a network of filters.

The only solid fact of the truth that I know is that it’s based on my perception which always provides the same feeling.

Here’s an example of a truth tug of war:

Me stating a truth: God doesn’t exist because I can’t see him.

Opposition claiming a lie and reclaiming the truth: You can’t see oxygen either, but it exists and you need it to live…

Me now devaluing that response and getting back a good part of my truth: Science can accurately detect and measure oxygen. Therefore I can predict areas that have more or less oxygen which keeps me safe in life. Science compensates for what I can’t see and significantly increases my survival rate. However, science has not yet been able to detect or measure God.

And on and on we go…

Perception is always shaping my truth as I live and learn in my life. As new experiences and fresh content give insight, I feel my energy shift from one fact or piece of information to another. It moves from one sentence to another, one paragraph to another, because truth is dynamic in nature.

The only truth about the truth is the way that I feel about it. Are you feeling me? If someone throws new light my way and it makes me feel like crap, I’ll distort it because I’m too attached to my old light. On the other hand, if it makes me feel good, I’ll join your tribe and hold onto it for as long as I can.
