Do Facts Exist?
By MortazaviBlog on Aug 07, 2007
Of course they do, if we are ever able to get our heads and hands around them.
We get our heads and hands around them when we interpret them for their light, their significance, if we ever apply our given facilities and capacity to do so.
What matters even more are the large number of consistent interpretations for any given body of facts. The enormously vast majority of these interpretations (of the same body of facts) will be mutually contradictory. The non-mutually-contradictory interpretations are merely expansions of a series of existing ones, encapsulating and imprisoning each other like Russian dolls. They reveal nothing new. They disclose nothing new. Instead, they simply envelope themselves in themselves, using larger and larger envelopes.
What matters even more is that facts have no life without interpretations.
The interpretations one chooses will define how one will live in this world and in other worlds....and even there, your interpretation will differ from mine....but at a certain moment of destiny for these interpretations, the imaginary gap will close itself, and they will merge towards the ever returning.
