I think that culture contributes a lot to truth and truth a lot to culture.  Looking over my notes from our previous class, I found a drawing of a loop connecting people<-->culture.  Whether or not universal truths exist, local truths are heavily influenced by this interaction of people and culture.  Since our culture is created by people, and since the brain is who we are, I think that the loops can be viewed to see how culture is constructed (as Angela touched on).  Then we can look at cultural constructs to see truth.  I guess that what I am saying is essentially in loop diagrams, but nonetheless this connection is quite interesting...not to mention loopy.
