What simply is.
Understanding the world around us is something often difficult to discuss or even completely understand. Almost all-human understanding is composed of symbol sets designed to measure and then define the world and human experience. The symbols are not truth, but what they are attempting to measure is true reality.
Calculus and other forms of mathematics are symbol sets that represent tools for measuring aspects of our true reality. We know these symbol sets work from experiential knowledge, not simply symbolic manipulation.
The scientific method is a reasoned way of attempting to find and catalogue the truth. With reproducible experiential tests we can come to understand if our symbolic measurements actually represent truth.
The concept that truth will set you free mentioned in the Bible is actually ironically true. Belief is the opposite of truth and truth itself breaks down all belief. Truth does not respect belief nor does it need belief to function because it simply is. Truth is what will always exist even if there is no existence. Truth is the beginning and the end and everything. Truth is rare for us to understand but it is also always present and always available.
The truth is amazing because it simply is. Truth isn’t something we can know; it is something we have to experience.
That is often why experience is considered of greater value than academics. Because an experienced person has worked with reality to create, design, produce and solve problems. An Academic though often focuses on the symbol set manipulation and lacks experiential knowledge for true understanding of what is reality versus fictional representations of abstract concepts.
There is only one thing that exists in all the universe, it is the truth and nothing but the truth.
Science is the measuring stick of truth. Science is not the truth, but it is our tool to measure the truth.
