Truth

Truth is what they are looking for – that is the essence of science, religion, philosophy, law, and even personal relations. – Truth is the hard core of the thing, which is the object of their life-long endeavor. – But, when the thing is gone, then were is the hard core? – Feelings do not have hard cores! All we deal with are expressions and interpretations which are based on feelings – and now in the search of truth we can only emerge from one interpretation to another – ‘truth’ never gets further than to the next interpretation.

Hence ‘truth’ is a simile, one of the strongest of them all. And we need it, and it is all right – but we should not start believing in a simile, not take a metaphor as a real being.

Any meaningful use of the concept ‘true’ means that it depicts a relation – and since it is a relation then it is never absolute. - A ‘truth’ is never absolutely true under all conditions. - Maybe we can rest with this notion of truth. – But, even so there is not much we can do with it, because next enters all the human qualities that distort the picture: memory; taste, intentions etc.

There is no other truth than a truthful description of the how conscious life functions.

‘Fact’ is a concept that goes hand in hand with ‘truth’ – they kind of need each other like the spouses in a happy marriage. The etymology is derived from a grammatical form of the Latin for ‘to do’ or ‘to make’; literary it would mean ‘thing done’, the modern sense of the use being "thing known to be true" (www.etymonline.com). – Hence ‘facts’ are the circumstances that have with authority been pronounced to be true. – And today people go about regarding ‘facts’ as something more than other variables. – But maybe we should use the word ‘variable’ instead of ‘fact’ – would we lose something in certainty?

And now if we say that interpretation means that we exchange one expression for another – then this must be the truth.

And since expressions do not exist, people have the need to create the existence, and this is done by declaring expressions ‘true’ or ‘false’, ‘factual or not’. – We see that these notions are creations of the imagination in finding a need to keep together the language originally developed for dealing with ‘things.’
