Universal truth depends on Myopia

Universal truth (a 100% applicable or capital “T” truth) can only come from a partial, subjective position, a myopic stance.

An all-encompassing answer can only come from (and be applied to) a limited, singular perspective. Once new perspectives are added, exceptions undermine truth’s universality.

To comprehend universal truth, one must recognize that it cannot be fully grasped unless one can simultaneously embody all conceivable perspectives.

“True universality and partiality do not exclude each other, but universal Truth is accessible only from a partial engaged subjective position” Slavoj Zizek
