I have been dealing with the idea of truth for much of my life, especially since my parents were divorced and my dad would shit talk my mom.

Truth can also be equated with "reality, or taking it further "objective reality". The age old question "what is real, what is not real"

Platos cave is a great example of this.

We all have a glimpse into what the truth is. In platos cave maybe a really smart scientist would be able to say "this is a projection, and it has a bowl at the bottom with spiky things on top so its true form must be something that can hurt us, because we know that spiky things hurt". But someone who becomes more aware by looking behind and using a mirror to see above would have more information to theorize upon.

The truth becomes filtered through each of our own awareness.

More relationships that can be defined between peices of information brings you closer to knowing how reality and it have interacted. Your theory (or model) should not be precdited by reality, it should predict reality (to a degree of accuracy). A better model can simulate past, present, and future situations.

Switching gears

We can take the formula of probability which is intended situation compared to all situtions

This will give us a percentage.

The number of times someone agrees with you, compared to the number of times someone disagrees + agrees, could be seen as a model to measure the truth.

I will leave you with the questions

1. Is this a good measure of truth, and why or why not?

2. Where do the total number of outcomes come from in your view?

3. Where do the total number of favorable outcomes come from in your view?
