And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.
Just like every other notion in the world, Truth is a construction, a complete fabrication of predetermination. Truth is paired with Evidence, which is fallible, & the human will, which is equally unreliable & dangerous. Truth breeds corruption, breeds money & sour deals, breeds business, breeds Fact. Truth & Fact are not equitable, they’re hardly even in the same hot air balloon as far as I’m concerned. The only similarity is the ease with which both can be manipulated (the former perhaps far easier than the latter, however). The point is that nothing can be understood taken at face value, & half of what’s left can’t be understood at no matter what value you take it. Truth/Fact; Evidence/Proof; Agendas/Bias, Corruption. I may argue forever that it all only leads to Corruption, that great slave owner of language.
I don’t think this is cynicism, I think it’s truth. & that’s not a capital T there.
Truth or corruption? They go hand in hand in hand in hand, one big circle. I don’t think I can stress this enough.
