    Pilate asked, “What is truth?”

    Kierkegaard said, “Subjectivity is Truth.”

    That may be what Subjectivity is, but it is not the Truth.

    I say that Truth is, unlike reality – which is merely how one (subjectively) construes the world, both visible and invisible around oneself – an absolute.

    Truth IS that what IS, what HAS BEEN and what IS TO COME.

    Nothing more, but certainly not an iota less.
