Hi dane,

> What is truth?

Truth is something that's in harmony with actualality outside of perception.

> Is it relative or is it constant?

The relativity of truth is much like the properties of time; whereas when perceiving it from different points it is relative to that point in each instance it is constant and fixed when choosing a specific and detailed point of reference, for Earth; on it it would always be a point in relation to the Earth itself (a day of within an approxamate 24 hour period outside of the catigorization of which 24 hour period it was yet still only specific to it). For truth; it is always fixed regardless of perception and is wholey outside of it. In the instance of two people obseving a color one of the two being color blind; a color is not anything of itself but an observable phenominon of the light spectrum made obsevable through the use of faculties and percieved by the individual, it's a percievement; truth can only be something that it relatable to the occurances of mankind on the larger scale as well as the smaller. For instance; when analyzing the past; if you got it right it is true if you got it wrong it is false and since their is no way to make it an absolute truth (ie time machine / had to be there) the only truth in this world is that which is openness and honesty in the individual occurance. To tell the truth (in the moment) in the 'little things' in the individual life is to have and be a part of that which is truth; their is no other.

> Are there any real universal truths?

If it is a truth it is a truth; an absolute truth; and a universal truth.

> Can believing something make it true?

Perhaps. It depends upon the actuality of occurance in the absolute sense. For the most part though I'd have to say no but that's not to say that wanting something cannot make it so/happen; theirs a difference. As well; believing something even if true does'nt make it true for the actualality would have to have been prior to the perception of.

That would be more like a perceivment of what the majority (or some) feel/s but one could argue that with the understanding behind all occurances it all 'works out'; 'fairly' , as well the oportunity of partaking in life itself could be viewed as something that is the core fairness of all that is existance.

Time is time and energy is energy, whereas they are the specifications and the relatively catagorizing bounds of time based oportunity in being the confines alotted why must they be commodities to something that already is.

> towards wants and desires.

Ah but why does one desire such things.
