There is a such thing as Truth

There is a such thing as Truth, and it matters. Some would have us believe that there is no objective truth, and that all we have are subjective perceptions – “Reality is only what I think it is.” Those who say that are manipulative and they are wrong. There is an objective reality with which we all interact. The human brain is the most powerful information processing system in the world. It is perfectly capable of perceiving truth and reality – objective, shared reality. There is a telephone pole on the corner. Anyone who hits it with their car is going to get messed up. This is truth. Individual subjectivity lasts right up to the moment of impact. At that point, shared objective reality takes over, and it will be the same cops and ambulance who answer the call, regardless of the subjective perception of the crashed driver. Truth really matters. There is a such thing as right or wrong, true or false. Life does not afford us the luxury of making our own rules. The telephone pole still guards the corner.
