Actually, relativity of truth is a peculiar subject, and my little entry won’t cover it a bit, it just can hang on it a little fig leaf of appreciation. I’ve devoted to it a big part of my piece called The Leap of Faith, and I could stop right here, but this morning I’ve seen a little news bite with Amanda Knox all over a TV screen and I thought: here we go, again. Essentially, the concept of relativity of truth is just a smokescreen used to promote, cover, and set up bases for whatever by whoever needs it. Leave it to flacks and politicians. Truth is a simple thing and it dwells in a simple answer: YES or NO, there is no relativity in a binary code. Let me give you an example:
I have a black cat in a bag. True or false? Of course my cat is actually white, but in absence of light there is no reflection and cat’s color is black, or is color assumed as a color when it is in light, i.e. taken out of the bag? And how do I know exactly that the cat is black when I can’t see it? And what is it there, in the bag, is it really a cat or a puppy or a little shape-shifting demon?
