comics for October 1, 2006 – 10/01/2006
Interesting remark. Way of vieving things depends on paradigm. In a totally relativistic world it is impossible to tell the truth by forcing two experts to agree. Both can be right in their own frames of reference. Religious and mystical traditions of the world are different, yet they are all paths to the one.
Extactly what the other guy/gal/E.T said. Whatever he said
But, if we agree that Dreamland has an independent existence, that gives it independent truth, since different people, each with their own frame of reference, have the same experience of Dreamland. So your truth would be found there.
I’m pretty sure it’s E.T.
There is no such thing as indipendent truth, there is only subjective point of view as it is formed through perception. For a man born blind for instance, colours don’t exist in the physical world. Perception can vary even more drastically in dreams.
Your answer there is what I’d bank on.
Alex says a smart thing for once in his life.
What is your subjective viewpoint on gravity? If yours differs from mine, I’d be very interesting in learning about it; I find my subjective experience of gravity to be more limiting than I’d like.
Though perception and interpretation of Truth can vary, Truth itself does not. It is therefore up to a person to find the correct interpretation of said Truth. Two people cannot be both right and wrong about a particular fact at precisely the same time- not unless you believe that the only absolute truth is that there are no absolute truths (which, is in itself an absolute, putting the true post-modernist into a state of circular hypocrisy).
Oh, for the love of Pete! Enough with the speculation already, on to the next comic!
Daniel: “It’s hard to find the truth.”
Alex: “Maybe we can’t handle the truth.”
u know iv got a theory that if something percieves something (eg. a cockroach seeing a miniature esplosion) thats what makes reality, if noone saw an event happen it would not exist in the physical world, conclusion: we exist because we percieve
