On the fundamental problem with the truth

Our conceptualization of reality splits reality into two aspects: process and pattern. The problem with this split is that it turns a “true” description of reality into a triangle drama.

The first question is if the “truth” resides in reality  or in our descriptions of reality. If it resides in our descriptions of reality, then it is ambiguous in having two aspects: process and pattern, whereas if it resides in reality, then it is contradictory (actually paradoxically contradictory) between these two aspects.

The “truth” is thus caught in the middle between the two aspects we create when we start discussing it. This middle is thus impossible to reach with words, because it is the foundation for words. It is thus not the truth, but the place where the truth ought to have been if it had existed.
