Why Truth?

December 22, 2014

Well in the first place, truth is just another name for realiity, and it’s unavoidable. Turn your back on it and it will bite you in the butt. That’s an impolite way of saying that there is, indeed, a moral arc of the universe, and it does indeed bend inexorably to justice (another name for nature’s insistence on being itself, doing its thing).

Being at one with nature is the healthiest, most pleasant way to live. Such a life is not painless or immortal, not even always just, in the near run, but it minimizes the damage and maximizes life itself.

But let’s not fool ourselves, nature requires knowledge of, and adherence to the truth.
