They say that “There is no truth” must certainly be false because if, well, it was true than at least it would be true than it would be false. Completely misses the point. “There is no truth” does not care whether it is truth or no. It doesn’t give a shit. It is an operational guide, not a epistemological consideration. It is a heuristic, not a judgement. It is an method not an fact.

If one knows Truth, he will have no need to expound it, categorize it, and put it in a textbook. He will simply LIVE it.

    To place Truth in the category of “Not Existing” is also to encapsulate and define it.

    If you have some time, I recommend the film “Stalker” by Andrei Tarkovsky. I also recommend meditating on “The Brothers Karamazov” and how it answers the Grand Inquisitor.
