Truth? There is no truth.

People who use "the truth" to argue their points of view are possibly incapable of comprehending the power of belief over the concreteness of fact. On the other side of the same coin, people who are motivated by beliefs cannot conceive of a world where there is anything besides believing in a thing. To wit, the purveyors of facts are just packaging their beliefs in the lab coat of science and peer review.
Truth? There is no truth.

Spoon? There is no Spoon.

"Your truth is not my truth," is insanity, pure and simple, to the scientist or to anyone to has been trained up in the secular world and has taken the scientific method to heart. Internalized.

In a world with God, goddesses, Saints, demons, devils, and even ghosts and spirits and dad and mom in Heaven—even if they're not a Bible is Literal Truth person—there is still a lot of space in the world for magic, for intervention, to miracles and angels and guides and numerology and spiritualism.

In an environment in which all that exists is the result of a word spoken, bringing about all existence, then everything is the direct result of belief and believing.

In this world, peer-reviewed scientific truth is only the shadow of the source of reality, which is Godly, spiritual, divine.

If you and everything around you is just in the imagination of a divine being, of a grand architect's, a diving watchmaker's, thoughts, imaginations, and words, then there is no truth (except, maybe, His truth) and there is nothing above or outside of this god-illusion.

The believer has the exact feelings of frustration, sadness, confusion, and condescension that the materialist, intellectual, academic, naturalist—atheists—has towards the believer. Pity, even. Lost.

So, the beauty of Frank Luntz—and the entire world of propaganda, PR, and advertising—is that they get that truth has almost zero effect: it almost never matters.

Why do I have some unique insight into something that should be more obvious to more people? Maybe my above insights are Freshman year late-night philosophical and political explorations of naive young minds, but when I talk to people, I don't tend to see too very much agreement, especially among my extremely witty, smart, well-educated and well-bred friends who spin the wheels and gun the engines of their 140+ IQs. Here's why...

I just discovered that I am an aphantsomeone who experiences the world in aphantasia.

Aphantasia is a mental condition characterized by an inability to voluntarily visualize mental imagery. Many people with aphantasia also report an inability to recall sounds, smells, or sensations of touch. Some also report prosopagnosia, the inability to recognize faces.

What aphantasia is is my experiential lack of either internal audio or video. For example, I have never literally seen a guided meditator's red apple, bell, candle, or orb. I can't literally count sheep that I can see in my mind's eye. I can't picture an audience in their underwear, and I am incapable of undressing someone with my mind. Same thing with either taste or sound. I have impressions. I only have "knowings."
