This is interesting to read as I have a renhoitlsaip with truth that is
unlike any I have observed before. I would prefer to have the truth over
any softening or filtering to make it anything less. Sure, some details
are not important as they are details that describe or give weight or
whatever… but the truth is the truth. It stands straight and tall and
needs details, not… but it is there regardless of how one tries to soften
it or color it or make it something else.There is, however, a difference
between leaving out details or the “story” and omitting information
which, in a sense, is a form of dishonesty… and yet is omission just not
giving it all away? Leaving some sort of mystery?I know men that will omit
and filter such that the story resembles, only slightly and with a lot of
imagination, the truth… and yet this is reasonable to them… and I
don’t get it? Why not just state the facts and move on?

i believe in the 2nd traveller wherein the truth is just a thing that
cannot be seen or touch its just an abstract thing ..

and we can find truth only in ourselves..

but we cant say that someone is telling the truth because truth is cannot
be seen by our naked eyes ..

truth is like an air we cant see it but we can feel it ! :)
