Human Nature: The Truth’s Roadblock

The world is full of beings. Each with their own perspectives, each with their own beliefs, and each with their own truth. An individual’s truth is dictated by how they were raised. Their present experiences, and their beliefs for the future affect how they see things.

While looking through these viewpoints the truth is understandably tainted. It is human nature for the truth to become messy, contaminated by the person encounter it.

Truth and bias are interconnected. If truth were to go unreported it could exist in its own form. However, for the truth to mean something, and for it to be absorbed, it MUST come into contact with a being who can reveal it. The truth is subjective to what it encounters.

Humans stand in the truth’s way. Truth is a human concept invented with the intention of helping to rationalize things. However, there is never, and there can never be only one truth, therefore it never really exists. As long as human nature stays the same, where humans are able to form their own opinions and thoughts, as long as humans are the ones who convert the truth, the truth cannot exist because it carries too many forms.

Truth requires something to pass it on, it requires a medium. In physics, when a ray of light exists to be seen it must first travel through a medium. From there, the light is either reflected: bouncing back in the opposite direction, absorbed or refracted: shining through at an angle that bends the light. The truth is like light. One person can see that truth reflected, another refracted, and another not at all. There are truths that can be perceived and accepted by individuals, but the truth suffers from multiple personality disorder.

Because truth behaves similar to a person with multiple personality disorder. It can be perceived in so many ways, so much so that their true self becomes hidden and unknown. The multituity of the perception of truth, causes it to not exist. It is simply too varied.
