    Truth and Facts

    At sea level water boils at 212 degrees F.  I believe this is a fact that represents an observation based upon some arbitrary scale. I'm sure that with careful census someone can quote the percentage of children that got to bed hungry.  Let us say that it is 10% for...

    Yeah

    Truth can have a variety of meanings, from the state of being the case, being in accord with a particular fact or reality, being in accord with the body of real things, events, actuality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard. In archaic usage it could be fidelity...

    Lady In Waiting

      This true story is nothing new.  It is my guess that the same scene is played out hundreds of times on a daily basis, and I have no doubt that many of you have either witnessed or actually experience some variation of this scene.  It is just another chapter in...

    Shroedinger's Cat

    Considering all things exist in all possible states simultaneously, and only choose a state when observed, or better yet, the observer actually effects the state of the particle being observed, there is really no such thing as "truth".

    Another Lesson

    I did not see this event, but read about it quite a few years ago.  It was in a book written by a physician celebrating the human spirit. It seems that a man's wife of 30 years had a stroke, and the left side of her face drooped heavily.  He was out of town at the time...
