Absolutely. There is reality the ideal, and the truth, the absolute.
We will never attain the real truth because it contains attributes that we do not have the wherewithal to comprehend.
The closest we get is our mental concept of reality.


Is not an ideal: a concept; a creation of man; a belief?
How can one be sure that this 'mental concept of reality', is more than a belief?
And what of this 'absolute'? How can it be anything more than a belief?

If thoughts, concepts of reality and truth are beliefs: then how could any belief be real or true?


Truth is only an attribute of the creator. Reality and Beliefs are the human constructs. Belief is dangerous because it involves a commitment that shuts out alternative realities. In essence, never believe in anything. At the most, strongly suspect and consider.

So never believing in anything, is what you believe in?
