Trophallaxis for Troglodytes

Vainglorious.

No, this is not about the Greek electronic music composer.

The world is turning constantly. Hurtling through space. An oasis of possibility. Blink, and then it is gone.

Words lie. People lie. People use words to lie. Words cannot really describe the truth. When I try to describe the truth with words, I end up lying. No way around that. The best we can do is perhaps just a lie of omission. Leaving something out. Because it doesn’t fit our version of the truth. Maybe its just something that we conveniently don’t remember. Or maybe we do, but we are so good at reshaping the truth to fit our lies that we can effectively ignore some things, almost as if they don’t exist. It is in this half-way realm between truth and lies that words carry us.
