A Search For Truth

Introduction

Kyle Eggleston

The great many options in this world come from that which cannot be seen. Oh to be able to see all of the many thought processes of man. To be seen of many is not meant to be accepted by just anyone. There are many who would say that man is the life and light which is to come. That is not always the case. It is not how this life was meant to behave.

It is a difficult thing to search for something all your life and never to find it. It is not accepted as a thing to be had among men. That is, it is not accepted to be the end all for everything. Perhaps it is not meant for us to see everything as it once was. To have such knowledge is not deemed necessary for all to be had.

So, what exactly is truth? Why is it difficult to find out what that is and why people tend to hide from it. One would think the truth would be at the front and foremost thoughts of all involved, in any kind of organization.

In a court of law, one testifies that they will state "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth".1

Should this not be the same case with anything that is said of anyone?

As Benjamin Franklen once said, "Half the truth is often a great lie."2

So, why do people not always tell the full truth? If there are only partial truths, why must there be a reason to cover it all up? It doesn't add up nor make sense why someone would only want to put on display a half truth as it were.

Notes

1. Do you solemnly (swear/affirm) that you will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, (so help you God/under pains and penalties of perjury)? Sworn testimony

2. Poor Richard's Almanack, 1914, p. 24
