in another class i had last

in another class i had last semester, we heard another version of an answer to the question 'what is truth'. instead of trying to cram all our ideas about truth into one space, we agreed on the fact that there are two kinds of truths - local truths (which, as you've said, is a human construction) and a larger, universal truth.

the question remains however, what all falls under 'local truths' - it differs not only from one individual to another but from one community, one country, one religion to another. and if all truths can be dissected in this manner, does this leave us with a universal truth? an energy which holds all this together?
