The Disillusionment of Volatile Filigree

Who ever told you that the truth would be understood by everybody? I propose that in the mind of many, perhaps in the back of the mind, many would assert that for something to be "true" it must be agreed on by all people. Of course with such a logic, many would also assert that absolute truth does not exist, and then proceed to use subjectivity as a defense. They have to run to that shelter because they know that it is impossible for everybody to agree on what "the truth" is in actuality. To call seven billion people over to your side only amounts to a vanity ridden wish. What evidence do you have to support that you are on the right side anyway? You will cry with such pity and helplessness, only to use your weakest defense: personal and finite opinion. Is human evidence good evidence to begin with?

Some people are deaf to the sound of music. Are others deaf to the sound of God's voice? There are physical objects in front of me right now. I see audio speakers, Tylenol, drawings, a textbook, a computer. If I close my eyes and begin to see phantasmagorical shapes instead of the physical objects I just saw, does that indicate that the physical objects are no longer real? No, it does not. It only means that I am in a place of not observing those objects. If observation is lacking, it does not indicate that the reality of the objects is lacking. It simply indicates that reality is not being perceived and embraced by my physical sight. My memory still recalls those objects even when I am not looking at them. Why is that?

Are colors real? Can colors not be trusted as being authentic because those who are color blind cannot see them? Why should those people believe that colors are real? Why should those who "see color" believe that they are real? Who are the deceivers and who are the deceived? I have no answers to provide for these questions.

It is a quarter to 1:00 AM and I am unsure of how to conclude this. The truth cannot be entirely based on what you see, nor can it be entirely based on what you cannot see, for the truth cannot be limited by the wandering or the restfulness of the eyes. To quote Timothy Speed Levitch: "Our eyesight is here as a test to see if we can see beyond it. Matter is here as a test for our curiosity. Doubt is here as an exam for our vitality."
