Quick: What has more gravity than a black hole?

Other than your Mom... Obviously

Well… Nothing.

Which, by and large, is ‘true’… technically; objectively. Though, and then again — what is ‘Truth‘?

It’s heavy, that’s what it is. Can’t you feel it’s weight as you read it, let alone daily, as it ever so casually rolls off your tongue? Hell, I think we all do. It’s sinful, in its way. There’s pressure orbiting it. Weight. Girth. Heft. We feel the need to get IT right, but we’re never, (not a one of us), really sure what IT is… not exactly. As a matter of fact there’s so much pressure surrounding it, I submit to you, gentle readers, that ‘Truth‘, itself, weighs more than the giant flushing toilet (with its ‘stinking’ Hawking radiation), that lies betwixt our universe!

But all this conjecture is subjective… This I know…

But, again, what is Truth? It seems important, no? And, and furthermore, how do we go about finding it? Is it objective, quantifiable, measurable, as so many seem to insist — like the determinable mass of a black hole by the size of its event horizon? Or is truth subjective, and true to each of us individually?

The answer?

It’s unsolvable

For the love of God, WHY!?

And here’s the ‘Truth‘ about why…

If I go ahead and postulate that ‘Truth’ is wholly subjective, well… would somebody please cue, The Dude, “Yea? Well, that’s just like, your opinion, Man.” There we are. And If I attempt to claim that it is objective, well than how can I possibly prove anything? Particularly something existential, like this, that lies outside the realm of science (which, in and of itself, is constantly wrong, and seeking truth for itself)!?

Perhaps, then, ‘Truth’ is merely a Mirage…

… a contrived system of nicety so that I wont kill you for a piece of your ‘Kit-Kat bar’ (seriously, why does nobody share those things? Who raised you people!?) Perhaps there really is no, genuine, “Truth”, or at least ‘Truth’ in the sense that society has labeled/defined it… Looks like now we’ll never figure out if your Mom really is heavier than a Black Hole. But, and in either case, (It’s your Mom) due to its philosophical and lofty nature, the search for “Truth” alone has inspired more than a few of my own, home-style (and chunky), Quotes — and it is these that I would like to share with you all today.

How about you read some and decide for yourselves?

Let me know what you come up with.



The only truth I'm certain of

Just cause you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. — Dec 11th, 2011

The one and only, UNIVERSAL TRUTH is….. There is no truth that is universal.
For if there were: the world would be a grey, lifeless thing, where you would always be right, and everyone else would be just like you. — Jan 5th, 2012

No longer taught in your local school; philosophy: the one and only thing preventing us from living in a perfect world. — Jan 1st, 2012

The path to happiness and truth is paved with many a harsh reality, possibly the most severe of which is that you are often wrong and can greatly improve upon who you are. Never blame the world — instead, look within. — Dec 21st, 2011

There are good stories, there’s truth, and then there’s a place of magic and inspiration which lives between the two. Never settle — Strive for both. — Jan 17th, 2012

At the end of the day, if you’re true to yourself, all you ever really need is a dollar more in your pocket than you ABSOLUTELY MUST have to pay your bills. From that point forward you are immensely fortunate and would do well to remember it! — Dec 27th, 2011

Knowing what we know now, about what we didn’t know then — we’d all be quite smart in accepting our part of the world growing dim. Always Demand Truth. — Dec 27th, 2011

Buzzwords are wanton, lacking of solid information and anemic. Reject them as truth but let them titillate your curiosity, and then — go learn for yourself. — Jan 3rd, 2012

Knowing how to Cook might just be the secret to Life — Think about it:
You have to prepare your ingredients — and they better be fresh — you sweat and temper for just the right amount of time, and then, even if you’d done everything else right, the final judgement lies with someone else, as they are the judges of palatability and widespread appeal. — Jan 14th, 2012

Judgment isn’t necessarily a bad thing, so long as your thoughts endure. Let judgment be the beginning, and compassion, the end. — Jan 6th, 2012

You’ll always be unhappy where you are if you’ve never really tried to be where you want to be. Try, and fear not — for failure is far preferable to having never made the attempt. — March 13th, 2012

He who knowingly fears the unknown is a walking paradox. — March 1st, 2012

The development of an innate devotion to the growth of the self, through any and all circumstance, is the first step in any positive spiritual change. — Jan 30th, 2012

If I must choose to either be crazy or normal — strap me in! Rather that than to be just the same as everyone else. — Dec 20th, 2011
