The Truth

Son, always tell the truth. Then you'll never have to remember what you said the last time. - Sam Rayburn

I like the belief in consistency honesty, but stumble on the word truth. Not all truths are true or remain true. Some truths are even only true depending on which lens you are given or chose for yourself. When the facts or circumstances change sometimes you have to change your model of truth. Pluto IS a planet, then it's not a planet. The world is flat, then it's not. One of these if subjective and the other is absolute fact. The world is not flat. What tends to make a lot of things true is that a lot of people believe them. Sometimes perception is reality (the strong dollar, stock prices, etc.).
