Truth is a meme that inflicted many even before Richard Dawkins coined the word meme. It is the same as people dying of cholera before Filippo Pacini isolated the vibrio in 1854 (yes, it was not Rober Koch).
Hindu philosophy describes this universe as an illusion. Experiments done by Alain Aspect at Paris in 1982 have also been interpreted in the same vein.The Holographic universe suggests that the physical world we believe to be real is in fact illusion. Energy fields are decoded by our brains into a 3D picture, to give the illusion of a physical world.
In midst of so much illusion where do we look for truth?
Obviously we look for facts within the illusory framework of our lives. However, believers of truth are not satisfied with mere facts. Jiddu Krishnamurti’s assertion that “truth is a pathless land” seems very pragmatic.
Yet many interpret it as – truth is a land of many paths. A private path to truth for each of us.
