I feel like I am missing something. I read your post and I have a few questions if you will bear with me.
First, the conflict of truth is last problem. The last problem before what?
Second, can you be more specific about how this conflict is a religious conspiracy.
Third, when you mention abstracts are you writing of religious abstracts, cultural abstracts, or something else completely?
"And what do you call the abstract?"
"The search for freedom; freedom to perceive, without obsessions, all that's humanly possible. I say that present-day sorcerers seek the abstract because they seek freedom. They have no interest in concrete gains. There are no social functions for them as there were for the sorcerers of the past. So you'll never catch them being the official seers, or the sorcerers in residence."
The term 'sorcery' is inadequate to express what sorcerers do, and so is the term 'shamanism.' The actions of sorcerers are exclusively in the realm of the abstract; the impersonal. Sorcerers struggle to reach a goal that has nothing to do with the quests of an average man. Sorcerers' aspirations are to reach infinity, and to be conscious of it."
He called the White House the site of power of today's world, the center of all our endeavors, hopes, fears, and so on, as a global conglomerate of human beings- for all practical purposes, the capital of the civilized world. He said that all this wasn't in the realm of the abstract, or even in the realm of our minds, but in the realm of intending, because from the point of view of our sensory input, the White House was a building that in no way had the richness, the scope, or the depth of the concept of the White House. He added that from the point of view of the input of sensory data, the White House, like everything else in our world, was cursorily apprehended with our visual senses only; our tactile, olfactory, auditory, and taste senses were not engaged in any way. The interpretation that those senses could make of sensory data in relation to the building where the White House is would have no meaning whatsoever.

Well, from where I stand, I don't see any one person or any group of people having the complete truth ever. Jesus aside, who can claim to have the complete truth? I think everyone has bits and pieces of the truth, but I don't thik that anyone has the big picture, nor will we ever. Some will say, "Yeah, but all things ar esupposed to be revealed,right?" Yeah, but that doesn't mean that the truth will necessarily be believed.

The last problem is the conflict of truth.
This conflict is so deep, some won't even agree with me.
This conflict is so deep, some will hide themselves from its truth, to avoid changing.
This conflict is so deep, it will cause bloodshed, and death on the largest scale we've ever known... because we can't and won't listen to anyone elses abstract.
quite fluid in almost all senses of the word
