Remember the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes with his lamp, searching everywhere for the truth? We’ve been searching in this blog, mouse in hand, for the truth again and again and again, to no definitive conclusion.
Maybe that’s because, even with the best intentions, it’s not necessarily easy to recognize the truth, let alone to tell it. Maybe it’s because there isn’t always THE truth. This is Danish theoretical physicist and Nobel Laureate Niels Bohr on the subject:
The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profouind truth may well be another profound truth.
Life isn’t as neat and tidy, perhaps, as we would like it to be. Nor is truth.
