On objectivity, truth and possibility, and wishful thinking

Some people claim that it is impossible to be totally objective. This is, however, not true. It is possible to be totally objective about the result of a competition. It means that there is also a truth, ie, that it is possible to be totally objective about the result of a competition. So, facts are that we can be totally objective and that there is a truth.

Some people claim that everything is possible. This is, however, not true. It is not possible to eat a cake and keep it, or to check if the light in the fridge is off when the door is closed. Fact is that not everything is possible.

The problem with these facts is that they either are man-made or contradict belief, none of which we wish. We wish facts that agree with belief, which, unfortunately, can’t be found. Wishful thinking can thus never be realized (independently of whether particle physics claims it has or not).
