Never mind about the ultimate truth. We’ve been debating ultimate reality since the savannahs — or the trees — or the alien seeding of our race — whichever version happens to be really true. In a hundred thousand years of humanity do we know without a doubt what it is?
Instead ask of whatever truth you’re latching onto, Is it true enough?
Newtonian physics may not have been the end point of our mathematical understanding, but it was true enough to get us to the moon. Einsteinian physics presumably is not ultimate truth either but it will likely be true enough to get us to the stars.
For ourselves we are asking, Is it true enough to grow me? Is it true enough to enlarge me spiritually? Is it true enough that it will enhance my humanity?
