A Question of Truth

What is the truth?

An illusion wrought by society and its norms, which turn out to be the foundation on which that society is built. Each generation brings up its own version of the truth, and falsifies the one before it, and so the world is immersed in a selfish and futile loop.

 

What is the world?

The world is a product of that illusion, and so it is an illusion itself. It is up to us, as individuals and as a group, to either submit to this illusion or transcend through it.

 

What does it mean to transcend?

To recognize, to realize, and to understand that nothing is true. The notion of laws and regulations is not brought upon by divinity, but through faith and fate.

 

The purpose of life is not to seek freedom, but to be wise. Do not demand to be free, demand yourself to be wise.

 

 

Nulla e reale, e tutto lecito.

    – Well written 🙂

    Wisdom is freedom.
    A man is as free as he thinks he is; he has to let go of his conservativeness, his fears and strenghten his faith. Freedom is to be able to breathe and live the life you want, not dictated by another. It is the power to know ‘ you can’ not ‘if you could..’

    As always, love your post 🙂

    • If a man is as free as he thinks he is, then that freedom is partial freedom. Freedom is indeed to be able too live as one wants, but what if society does not see it your way?
      True freedom comes outside of society, outside of norms.
      Our thoughts, perceptions, even our faith, has already been dictated to us when we were young. Today, we live with those dictations as if we, ourselves had a hand in choosing them. That, is the purest form of the illusion of freedom via truth.

      And as always, I look forward to your insightful comments.
