In the wordless world, truth doesn’t exist for self-evident reasons.
Among the word-users, there are those who are looking for truth, and those who claim to have found it.
Among those who claim to have found it, according to Google, true is “about 4.24 billion results,” Wikipedia took the short-cut, “True most commonly refers to truth,” and some claim the wisest and noblest teacher is nature.
“Will the real truth please stand up!”
Will the real truth please stand up risks to start another disagreement among those who claim to have found it, and if the past is anything to go by, it shall be the same old “Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the fairest truth of them all?” all over again.
For the adults, it is okay because we have gotten used to it, but to the children, the truth is just another fairy tale.
Mirrors do not determine who is right, only who is competing, which explains, I think why the truth doesn’t work so well.
True is a word, and what truth tells us about words is whether a word happened or not doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that it’s true.
There are no truths here, only words. What word-users do with each is a different story entirely. There’s nothing the writer can do about it…is yours truly true point of view.
