Truth, as a concept, is an artifact of naive realism. Of interpreting experience literally, rather than rationally. Truth requires that the phenomena remains unchanged if there were become no observers. The observer-independent reality which 'truth' appears meaningful in is itself a delusion. Quantum mechanics have led us to understand that the most fundamental determinants of an observed phenomena are the beliefs and expectation of the observers. Neither subjective, nor objective. Intersubjective. A shared creation rather than a found externality. The literalist notion of truth is derived from the Protestant influence on early modernist ideology. It is a vestigial cognitive ghost we need to vanquish in order to evolve. It’s also a real unimaginative bummer, my man.
