  1. Imagine that you want to drink a glass of clean water. But you are offered a choice of three glasses with different poisons. You start checking which of these poisons is closest in composition to water, and you find it. Will you drink this poison?

    Concepts are never adequate to the truth, because they are secondary to it. Truth is the cause, and its description, model, is the effect. Therefore, this model is always limited and distorts the truth. Therefore, different philosophical traditions offer ways of direct non-conceptual knowledge of the truth. Seeing the world as it is. If a person knows the truth, no words, definitions, formulas, signs will be enough for him to describe it adequately in full. Therefore, the apophatic method is often used to describe the truth. That is, they are trying to tell us what the truth is not.

  2. Now I will express a strange thing – few people, perhaps, will understand, and many will experience irritation. But in general, all ideas, especially those that have passed the test of time, work. All of them are based on some deep experience and on the thoughts of a large number of intelligent people. Including those that at first glance exclude each other. You should be attentive to any idea and do not dismiss anything from the doorstep, as they like to do here.

  3. Solipsism is when a horse driven by a coachman, pulling a cart, thinks that it chooses its own path and speed.

    Palingenesia is a lily of the valley that flies from one flower bed to another, “gifting” all other flowers with its cloying smell, being sure that all flowers should smell exactly like that.

    Open individualism – If all people are one person, then all animals are only hares and no one but hares.

    All three are equivalent to a swan, crayfish and pike pulling a cart each in its own direction. But the who is still there.

  4. Perhaps you should first decide what meaning you mean by the word “truth”? What exactly is closer and to what truth? “Is there life on Mars?” (film Carnival Night) “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end”? (Revelation. 1:8), “There is only a moment between the past and the future, it is called life” (words of the famous song). “Where will we be after death? The same place where the unborn rest.” (Seneca).�

    The philosophical terms you have given are no less than thousands and thousands of years old. And each new generation introduces its own additions to the definition of these terms, although so far, for tens of thousands of years of human existence, no one has found out what the TRUTH of BEING is. There were and still are many points of view, either as in Solipsism, which means “I AM ONE”, or as in Palingenesis-BORN AGAIN, or in open individualism (Tat Tvam Asi) – YOU ARE LIKE THAT.

    Either nothing is true, or we don't know what is true. Democritus
