We seem to want to make sense of that which is not conforming. The nature of the word “fact” has been put in peril. Truth has many metaphysical and other theories to explain it.
Cartwright says “ a belief is true if and only if it corresponds to a fact”. See “truth” in Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy.
We are stretching the muscle of the mind with information that can be deceiving. Allow the fluidity of time to gather the impervious gates and relax into swaddling.
