only see part
As long as we observe the world from a singular point of view,
we will only see a fraction of the big picture. Even if we're
looking at the same thing, it's still from two different angles.
The rest remains "unknown."
Truth is many things at once
For example, according to physics, light is both a particle
and a wave. But that's only when you're not looking. You can
only look at it as one or the other. "Truth" therefore is
more than you can see in a single moment.
We interpret Truth
We have beliefs about Reality and every experience has to
either "fit" or be discarded. We see Life as we believe it
We add to Truth
We also project our own Beliefs onto what we observe. We "fill
in" the gaps that we don't see with things that we just simply
assume to be True. A scientist seeing an unusual event will
calculate the cause far differently than a person who is devotedly
Truth may or may not actually exist independent of
Then again, Truth may not actually exist outside of our own
experience of it. I can speak of my experiences, and compare
them to yours, but that's still just observations, isn't it?
Will we ever really know?
Find two people who experienced the
same event, such as a sporting event or an argument, and ask
them to describe what went on. You'll get a sense of what actually
happened, but both experiences seem different, don't they?
