The question was can we truly know anything about the world. What we perceive about the world, what we know about it, the world is. There are many things that many of us have not seen but we know the be in existence, for example creatures at the deepest floor of the ocean. We may not have seen it in person or through pictures but the fact that we accept that as a possibility, therefore it has the possibility to exist. When we play with the thought of there being animals, plants, places that we do not know for sure that exist, have the possibility to exist. What do y’all think?

@wayner, I love this question. The question of whether that there is any truth in the universe, and if there is, how do we know that the truth, is true boggles my imagination. What frame of reference does anyone have on this planet that delegates them to ‘know’ and ‘serve’ the truth? Where did that truth come from, how did it even become to be a truth? The truth about truth, is that there is no truth. How could there be? There are no facts, just interpretations of events and happenings in our world, the truth becomes the most widely accepted interpretation. I want you to realize how much possibility flows through this universe, and If you follow the theory of parallel universes, you’ll see that the future as it rests right now is just a possibility, only the true future is an unknown surprise. Any truth is a possibility, or that possibility could be true.

You may hear old professors, your mother, your friends, or neighbor speak about knowing the truth, following the truth, and accepting the truth, but they’re all just as lost as you and I. It’s like we were asleep traveling on a giant spaceship and we just woke up in the middle of flight and no one knows how to fucking fly it or anything else about it for that matter. We learn as we go, and there are some things that we will never know as ‘truth’.

@connerj93, I believe that the only truth that, as a person, can rely on are experiences. If you experience it being cold outside that’s the truth as you interpret it however if a person who lives in the arctic for example experiences 50 degrees F it may not be cold to them but could to me. But it is still true if I say it’s cold and it’s true if they say its warm.

“The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know.” You don’t know anything. Neither do I.. neither does anyone else who tells you they do. Stop watching television, stop listening to “teachers” and people who claim to have answers. There is only one truth in this universe., and that’s you. How are you going to find something that you are? Stop thinking so much. Try just being for awhile and see how much more you find out. =)
