Source of Truth

Disclaimer: I always tell the truth, even when I lie

 

Don’t worry, I am not gonna talk about GOD; I am talking about Truth. And no, they are not synonymous.  Have you ever imagined what it means when people refer to Truth? Even I haven’t given much of a thought until now.

The truth is: A country’s judicial system rests on it. People’s life, their future, fate is decided by it!

Lately, you might have heard about Muhammad Ali, The Greatest. It’s not just his nickname; he is regarded as the greatest Boxer of all time. Now, have you heard of Willie Pep? (Yeah, even he is dead) Pep is the only boxer to win 229 fights out of 241 and as per the stats; he came out on top in 1,956 rounds, which is no joke. If we go by the facts, William Pep is the greatest on paper. Is it true that he is better than Muhammad Ali? Naah, I don’t think so. Now that’s perception.  So this is where I am getting at, please don’t confuse “Truth” with “Fact”. The fact is something that has happened, it’s about the reality. Facts are figures, they are always constant; but truth, on the other hand, is the story behind the reality, a variable, it changes every single time.

The truth is told only once, it can never be repeated. And whenever it’s retold, it’s just another perception of the truth and not the truth itself.

Let’s assume there was an incident in your life which you can never forget. Think about the instance when you proposed your woman for the first time. It was the moment of truth, as real as it can get but when you try to recollect and narrate it, you may add a few corny dialog and try to make it more romantic and engaging for the listener. The thing is, your brain renders the images from your memory and directs a movie out of it, which might look very analogous with the actual incident, but may not be entirely true.

The truth is, we all have our own versions of the truth.

 

P.S. I always tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth 😛 Take it with a pinch of salt.

The Brawl

Disclaimer: Before you scroll any further, you need to be cognizant of the Big Bang theory, Accelerating Universe, Plasma Cosmology and the Alpha and the Omega. Just kidding, now please turn off your scientific thinking (any of the Rohit Shetty films might help).

 

Just imagine, we have (or had) the perfect planet for our survival. It’s placed so immaculately in our cosmos that an inch here or there might cost a lifetime to the mankind. It always rotates and revolves at a constant speed in our solar system, wow! We have a balanced atmosphere with right proportions of various gasses indispensable for our existence. We have got everything we need viz. oxygen, water, food (trees for herbivorous and animals for carnivorous). I always wonder how everything can be so impeccable!  The complexity of our planet simply points towards a deliberate design.

There are two kinds of people in this world, ones who believe in the Creator (or so called GOD) and the ones who believe in Science. Just for a moment, let’s not talk about the scientific origins of the universe; let us assume that the universe is created by the Great Architect. Yes, I am saying that the GOD do exist (lol, and may be, he sounds like Morgan Freeman). What if he was the one who started the big (gang) bang! You may not believe in him but you always silently pray in your head when you feel something bad is about to happen.

You can always put up several points to defer like the ones listed below

  • Where was your GOD during the earthquake, he just let millions of people die
  • What was he doing when the kid was born without limbs
  • Why can’t he stop the war
  • Why did he instigate Cancer in this world
  • Why can’t he make everybody rich and happy
  • Why can’t he make every man handsome and every woman beautiful
  • Why can’t he control Bangalore traffic!
  • Why did he let my dog eat his own poop :/

Okay, so this is my hypothesis, if there is a GOD then there is a DEVIL. And the devil is the root cause of all the infamously diabolical things happening in this world. So we don’t have one but two supreme beings who fight each other eternally in some unknown dimension for every incident that occurs in this universe. Maybe you survived that nasty accident without a scratch just because the GOD won that fight for you (you might call it luck or whatever that means).

They are just like Batman and Joker. They both complete each other and create equilibrium in this universe. And they are inside your head. You are the GOD and the DEVIL.

May the force be with you _/\_

 

P.S. I am an agnostic myself just trying to come up with some dumb theory and I don’t intend to wage war between atheists and theists.

On your face, Neil deGrasse Tyson :p
