Truth Is Nothing But …

  • an illusion, a series of contradictions wrapped up in what we wish to believe about the world.
  • a reflection in a broken mirror, showing different facets to different observers.
  • a commodity, valuable when it serves profit and discarded when it does not.
  • another asset in the market, its value fluctuating based on demand and manipulation.
  • a convenient narrative shaped by those in power to maintain control.
  • another asset in the portfolio of those who can afford to define it.
  • a concept philosophers chew over, each finding a different flavor.
  • a good story that gets better with each telling, regardless of the facts.

But, Let’s not define truth because every definition would contradict another, making truth a maze with no exit.

Let’s avoid the illusion of a perfect definition.
