Such wild leaps. Reminds me of breaking horses.
The truth may be nobody's possession, but that
doesn't prevent us from dealing with individual truths,
right relations to individual realities. If you see a red
light and stop for it, you have probably assessed a truth
about your situation at the moment. Which is not to say
that there is no role for mysticism.
An interesting factor is the commonalities which the mystics
from various backgrounds have discovered amongst themselves.
Techniques of meditation in particular have a lot in common.

In other words, then, the 'truth' cannot be defined, understood,
appreciated, dealt with in human
terms, or supported by logic. And lo, we're back to arbitrary mysticism
whose only justification
is, by definition, itself.
