What is Truth?
Four values above all are the key to ultimate happiness and contentment and are evident in the first paragraph of 'The Sound of Laughter';. Here it reads:
'My memory when I'm gone will be colorful, rich, full of happiness and light.…they will see a bright smiling picture with trickles of laughter in the background and the chirp of peace echoing throughout my aura.'; Here my value of optimism is shown through being vulnerable to having your heart filled with color, richness, and light. If you can do this it enables you to overcome the nasty demons that destroy such powerful things as optimism and vulnerability. If you hold the capacity to instill such values within yourself you will finally see the truth in the phenomenon that says light always overcomes such demons as darkness and seclusion.
To be peaceful is another value I paint by saying '…a bright smiling picture with trickles of laughter echoing throughout the background.'; To be peaceful is to reside where such light is resonated. When you reach such an elevated state of consciousness such light will resonate through you enabling your inner peace be your amour, protector of any outside hurt rising you out of pain.
To see beauty is another value I uncover to you by giving you an optional lucid dream. This dream is hinted in the background meanings of descriptive, and almost poetic suggestions like, ';My memory when I'm gone will be colorful, rich and full of happiness and light…they will see a bright smiling picture with trickles of laughter in the background…chirp of peace echoing throughout my aura.'; If you can remain optimistic and peaceful it would only be natural to see the poetic beauty and the movement of the words used for description in the above excerpt because your higher level of consciousness breaks away such chains of fear and hurt and gives you a holy armor.
Finally the last hidden value of truth is my final and most important moral value. It rises above the rest because it is the only one that will insure complete an angelic state. It is a universal truth that lives within each of us.
Truth is universally important. Without truth nothing is real, all would be an illusion of lies and fables steering us into the confusion and chaos of a complex mirage. Who is to know what really exists, what is really pure and what is completely uncontaminated by lies?

- Life in Wool is a cycle of innocence, ignorance, knowledge, and indifference towards truth. While the people want to live knowing the truth, perceived truths are harmful and self-destructing. Hopes and dreams for a better life can cloud judgement and blur the line between reality and fantasy. This conflict causes the reader to question whether ignorance is really bliss as Howey highlights the blithe of children versus the knowledge of those seeking answers. There is a hidden truth to life in the silo, as hinted at in the passage, “As Holston ascended the last few levels, the last steps of his life, the sounds of childlike delight rained down even louder from above....

- “Derealization”: The Irrevocable Truth Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.”-Voltaire. “Derealization” is about a story of a boy who derails reality to compensate for his harsh life. The David Mills encompasses literary tools such as illusion motif, weed pipe symbols, and the things being other to propel the character development of Shaymus. To convey his message of difficulties in finding truth in the world, Mills shows that one can only pretend for so long till the truth comes out and that no matter how one tries to hide something or pretend it does not exist, truth has a way of coming out....

- In chapter 7 of his book, Lynch addresses various opposing viewpoints that are centered on the idea that truth is a type of fiction and does not really exist. He immediately goes on to defend the existence of truth with claims that philosophers seldom deny the existence of truth and that the question “What is truth?” is simply pointless because truth “has no nature that needs explaining.” The Nietzchean view of truth is based on the belief that truth is not deeply normative or good. Lynch points out the flaw of this theory in that it hints at the unsatisfying logic “truth is worth caring about therefore the pursuit of truth must be blind relative to other things.” As a counterclaim, Lynch be...

- The Categorical Imperative and the Problem of Truth Kant’s argues that his Categorical Imperative (CI) or, more properly, his multiple versions of the CI are universal in the sense that they apply to everyone at all times. If the CI actually is universal in this sense, it fulfills one of the major traits necessary for a moral principle (Pojman 7). The vagueness of the CI, however, makes its universalizability hard to assess. To simplify the issue, this paper will examine Kant’s response to Benjamin Constant’s objections to telling a murderer the truth.... [tags: Morality, Truth, Immanuel Kant]

- Everyone thinks they know the truth, actually is. The real question is, do we really know what the truth is. There are many ideas on what the truth is. Descartes and Nietzsche have an idea on what in the world truth is. Nietzsche argues that the whole idea of truth is just an illusion. He says it is fake and we really tight. On the other hand, Descartes proposes that the truth is there in some cases, but not in other ways. The way, the truth is there, is Math and Science. Nevertheless, by taking a closer look at their arguments about what truth actually is, I will argue that Nietzsche position is a better account for what truth actually is because it shows the reader how fixed on the trut...

- Is the Media Coverage Tainting the Truth. The media has become a major channel for the public to obtain their information. However, the media has taken advantage of their powerful position by embellishing the actual news so that viewers will be more interested and keep watching their program. One of the most exploited events in the media is Ebola. The media has blown the threat of Ebola out of the water and incited fear induced panic throughout the states. Kalev Leetaru, the Yahoo. Fellow in residence at Georgetown University justifies the media’s coverage of Ebola by saying that the media did not cover Ebola until it hit the United States, however this argument is irrelevant to the fact th...

- But this still doesn’t entail knowledge. Knowledge requires truth, but the future’s truth value is undefined. The events in question have yet to occur, and thus whether or not they will occur is questionable. So, any one of these future events could be true or false. Thus, the truth value is undefined. If the truth value is undefined then the belief is not true. If it cannot be true then it cannot be knowledge. Instead, since we can be justified in our future beliefs, the most we can obtain is a justified belief.... [tags: Epistemology, Truth, Science, Belief]

- Have you ever been confused about what moral truth really means or what it is about. Moral truth, in my opinion, is a big picture, which is collected and puzzled from small pieces coming from combination of religion science, and experiences. They have a strong relationship because each of them supports the others’ frameworks and strengthen them into bigger ideas that have specific influences to people’s mind. First at all, even though science is not always correct 100%, it is still an acceptable source of truth that is reliable enough for people to trust in.... [tags: Religion, Faith, Truth, Belief]

- The “Truth” Every thought that ever entered our mind is a consequence of our struggle to reach out for the truth. Since our early age we have been thought to believe that there has to be right and wrong and we continuously searched for the “correct” answer. Unlike school’s multiple choice tests, life thought us that there is more than one correct answer. At one point we learned that some questions don’t have answers at all, or they are way too complex for our mind to understand them. Yet we never stopped struggling to reach out for the ultimate truth.... [tags: Definition True Truth Philosophy Essays]

- Access to the Truth In “Zen and the Art of the Writing Tutorial,” Paul Gamache asks, “do you think of yourself as an Expert. Do you have access to the truth?” I like this question because it seems to contradict some of his other assertions. For example, he claims that he sometimes does not provide his students with the help they want; rather, he gives them the help he deems they need, and he only gives them the assistance they desire when he decides that it is also what they require. How does he know exactly what they need.... [tags: Truth Writing Expertise Essays]

The moral value of truth revealed its importance slowly, softly evolving overtime like the metamorphosis of a blooming rose but the clarity came from a dispute with my family. My family is my everything, and when they threatened to leave me until I could be truthful to not only them but myself I fought like and angry fish gasping for air. 'I don't lie, they're lying! We were both at fault.' I couldn't own up to my mistakes and in turn almost lost the greatest jewel of my life, my family. Then I found clarity, but only when my optimism gave me hope for resolution, inner peace cleared the hurt, and the beauty of our bond became relevant did I learn that truth was the key to ultimate happiness. I began to tell them the whole truth and in turn regained respect.
To convince someone that this is the absolute highest moral value I would ask him or her to look inside themselves and look inside their lives. If truth wasn't the highest value, how honorable would the bond of your marriage be? How real would your promises be? How would justice be found? It would not, there would be no hierarchy or model to hold your convictions to, it would all be a messy chaotic confusion of lost emotion. I say lost emotion because without truth emotion would be lost.
Emotion plays a crucial part in moral values because they are the bodies natural detection of what is wrong and what is right. If something is wrong you know it is wrong because you can feel it, directly in your heart. You can deny that it is wrong verbally but inside it clenches around your heart polluting your body with famine. This can be more destructive than the lie itself. Sometimes I loose faith in the power of truth. I see the corrupt attitudes of society and the shadiness of others surface. Sometimes I feel as though I am the only one being honest to myself and society, almost like it would be easier to be dishonest. Then a small miracle happens, I remember the strides I have taken and I feel the bond my family shares and I know that truth and honesty is the only way. My emotions take me higher, but not without my intellect. Ponder rationally with me: be honest and carry no burden or dodge the truth, suffer and sweat and prey it won't come back to slap you in the face?
Sometimes the latter seems to be the easier route: 'Oh if I tell him I didn't cheat he'll never know, and we can still be together.'; When your spirit is lazy and your mind begins to give up; when optimism dwindles your hope, peace breezes away with a conflict and beauty turns to ugliness. When I have no faith to move foreword, not even tomorrow, then does the importance of truth leave me. Sometimes I slip, and other times I hold on and know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the fastest route is through my self and my inner truth.
I would say my two most prevalent methods to finding my moral values are modes in which I arrive at knowledge through either emotion, intuition, sense experience, and deductive logic.. Nothing is more real then feeling something is right in your heart. To me emotion makes most of my decisions because I feel with my heart and my mind. It is how I have always been, so to come about with an answer only from authority, and/ or science would be totally foreign. Authority has no bearing with me because what is authority anyway? In the most simply, authority is someone elses' opinion. How could someone elses' truth be mine as well if I don't feel it in my heart? If I had to pick my moral values from pure science alone it would be contradicting my views on authority. Science is a synthetic technique relying upon math and logic. I am a poet not a scientist, science to me is non-valid unless I write the theory and my theories are born within my own heart and emotion.
The four most important moral values are optimism, peace, beauty, and truth. Without one you cant have the other, and without truth you can't have any of the rest. My morality comes from myself, not what anyone says, though I find a higher power in simplicity among the true great poets and the strength I find in my family. Never let go of truth, without it you, me, the entire population would be lost. Never loose sight of yourself because without yourself you will never find truth.
