introduction

Truth is akin to a vast puzzle, where we, as observers, can only glimpse a minuscule fragment at any given point. Each decision, moment, and connection forms a piece of this puzzle.

What we perceive as 'truth' may often be comparable to seeing a patch of blue on a puzzle piece and presuming it to represent the sky when it might just as likely be part of an eye. Our understanding of the 'truth' is thus always partial, contextual, and evolving with every new piece we discover.

directed perception

Perception is not a mere passive intake of reality but an active, goal-directed process. It is a shaping mechanism for understanding the world around us, a manipulation and construction of reality driven by our unconscious mind. This shaping process is intentionally guided and reconfigured to suit our goals, learning processes, and the drive to understand our environment.

Various factors contribute to the perception of reality, including our limited sensory apparatus, past experiences, cognitive abilities, and more. Through this lens, our conscious mind captures this reshaped reality, a perception we use to interact with the world and a core element of our decision-making processes. Our perceived reality and derived understanding are not absolute but relative, dynamically constructed to serve our goals and facilitate learning.

This personalized, goal-oriented perception often forms the basis of what we conventionally regard as 'truth.' However, it's crucial to recognize that this understanding is bounded by the subjectivity of our perception and the limitations inherent to our mental processing.

To delve deeper into the nature of 'truth' itself, we must look beyond perception, acknowledging perception's intentional nature and the human limitations that further shape it.

the human perspective

Redefining our understanding of truth involves viewing it not as a fixed, objective fact but as an interconnected construct. It is not because the absolute truth is flexible and subjective but because human limitations, like information access, processing capacity, etc., do not allow us to build a snapshot of the absolute truth at any given point.

Therefore, refining our understanding of truth from our available human perspective is a better way of evolving and evaluating our reality, even if it is far from perfect or complete. Even though it is generally accepted, understood, and visible throughout history that the truth about something is continuously forming, this insight has not yet led to a clear consciousness and acceptance of this same fact of common sense.

Such a clear awareness, like a soft "question mark" that lets one check throughout time the state of the truth of a subject again and again, or the change of the term, in something else not carrying the characteristic of absolute the word Truth comes with, would lead to an easier and faster evolvement of our understanding of reality, nature, and the interconnected way the universe's system works.

By beginning to challenge any of your Truths, you start a journey of possible discovery of a more expanded truth, the results you can use to shape, optimize, and speed up your way to your goals.

The absolute truth is the systemic knowledge of all decisions, all possible decisions, and all elements of all decision-making processes.
