Truth is a many storied building.
The Buddha in his enlightenment discovered that there is no such thing as an absolute truth!
The four noble truths and the eightfold path ensue.
The poet’s truth is just as real to him as is the scientist’s to himself!
Merely because the latter appeals to the rational mind it cannot and should not be given a higher weightage than that which only a mystic can perceive from beyond the five senses.
More importantly, truth when its not your still remains untruth, believing is not the same as knowing be it god or small intestine!
So, what is true, depends on you. Your ability to perceive and to know much more, possibly entirely even, than on what the object of truth is.
