Truth and Verity

011Often, the surest way to convey misinformation is to tell the strict truth (Mark Twain).

Question: In principle, we consider something to be the truth and something to be a lie, this is in a way the basis of our perception of the world. Is there any mechanism to distinguish between truth and lie? How can a person orientate himself?

Answer: I do not think this is quite simple. Finding the truth is the goal of many quests of all people, from a small child to great minds, depending on the level and how they see this truth.

The search for truth is, of course, a very unrewarding task, but it is at the same time a very human one. It develops us and pulls us forward. Basically, we live in order to understand the meaning of our life. This is our most important quest. This is what we exist for.

Question: Does the truth somehow differ from verity? Are these different concepts?

Answer: Truth is when we can say that it is true or false, the greater truth, the lesser truth. Verity is something that is unshakable. We want to attain it. Each degree toward attainment of verity can be called truth.
