So don't do it ;-)

Notice that my post was not an assertion, not a truth claim but a question.

A question intended as an attractor towards enquiry and reflection.

Not a "this is how it is" but more of a "shall we enquire into it?"

So, shall we?

I like that!

And what is the "realm" of forms?

The empty space that contains them.

Truth is empty space.

If truth is empty space, what does it say of our position if our mind is full of beliefs and has no empty space around the beliefs?

RE: What Is Truth?
I'd say truth is that which is consistent with reality.

8000 years before Jesus, the Egyptian god Horus said, "I am the way, the truth, the life."
