Isn't this a bit circular my friend? You say the truth is objective, which means it is composed of facts. You say it is an undeniable fact that the truth is composed of facts. One cannot deny the truth.
Why is the truth objective? Because it is composed of facts. Why can't we deny facts? Because it is the truth. Why is it the truth? Because the truth is composed of facts. And so on.
The Aneristic Principle is that of APPARENT ORDER; the Eristic Principle is that of APPARENT DISORDER. Both order and disorder are man made concepts and are artificial divisions of PURE CHAOS, which is a level deeper that is the level of distinction making.
With our concept making apparatus called "mind" we look at reality through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us. The ideas-about- reality are mistakenly labeled "reality" and unenlightened people are forever perplexed by the fact that other people, especially other cultures, see "reality" differently. It is only the ideas-about-reality which differ. Real (capital-T True) reality is a level deeper that is the level of concept.
We look at the world through windows on which have been drawn grids (concepts). Different philosophies use different grids.
Western philosophy is traditionally concerned with contrasting one grid with another grid, and amending grids in hopes of finding a perfect one that will account for all reality and will, hence, (say unenlightened westerners) be True. This is illusory; it is what we Erisians call the ANERISTIC ILLUSION. Some grids can be more useful than others, some more beautiful than others, some more pleasant than others, etc., but none can be more True than any other.
DISORDER is simply unrelated information viewed through some particular grid. But, like "relation", no-relation is a concept. Male, like female, is an idea about sex. To say that male-ness is "absence of female-ness", or vice versa, is a matter of definition and metaphysically arbitrary. The artificial concept of no-relation is the ERISTIC PRINCIPLE.
The belief that "order is true" and disorder is false or somehow wrong, is the Aneristic Illusion. To say the same of disorder, is the ERISTIC ILLUSION.
>>579853 >They seem to be talking about and believing in objective reality which post-modernists don't believe in
It entirely depends on what kind of post-modernist you are. Faggots going around about how you can't understand something because your privileges are hiding them from your world-view are basically shitty Kantians.
>Facts do not convey truth. That's a mistake. Facts create norms, but truth creates illumination.
>If you’re purely after facts, please buy yourself the phone directory of Manhattan. It has four million times correct facts. But it doesn’t illuminate.
>There are deeper strata of truth in cinema, and there is such a thing as poetic, ecstatic truth. It is mysterious and elusive, and can be reached only through fabrication and imagination and stylization.
Reality changes, and if you believe humans can achieve truth that sufficiently mirrors reality, truth is also in flux. Truth is a relative term. It is relative to faith in our own sensory organs and reasoning, along with the assumption that we can accurately grasp the language of others and place our aforementioned sense-data and reasoning within some universal context, contrasting true from false and greyer shades.
