.....Tonight's "Nightline" feature was about video cameras, and the effect that their introduction into everyman's hands is having on the Justice System. A projected example was the most recent elections, and the cameras were there;
.....with the protesters, and so, as a result, they were there with law enforcement.
...one comment by a guest, began conceptually, with the suggestion that the technology is indifferent.
.....However, the excerpts that were used, occassionally were selectively edited, and always can/will be, by either side, in its fervor for "A" "truth". Our "reality" has become that which can be successfully "decided" in a court of law, and that differs at times with actual events. and isn't always dependant on the debate...

...."It's not about the truth, son...it's about justice."

....."The truth.....YOU can't HANDLE the truth." (gotta love Nicholson...>>five easy pieces??<<

>>>again, this tweaks my thought process, as I reflect on the conscious entity's preoccupation with needing to interpret all that happens.<<<<<<

..... We do it with our recollections, and now, apparently, we will do it with our collections; our trophies... our footage. With no regard to the lessons of the film makers craft;... the effect of POV, ...camera shot is offered as overview.
...If our retelling of witnessed events is so influenced, how can our philosophical reconstruction of creation be any less influenced?
.....truth.....
.....search for.....
.....truth.....
.....can I "afford".....
.... the truth?.....
.....can't read everything.....
.....can't see everything.....
.....manage to see what,
.....everybody else sees.....

.....and above Langley glares...
....."The Truth Will Set You Free"

.....hmmmmm....I must be getting out for a few days.......bwa ha ha ha ha

It is indeed difficult to know what to believe as "truth". In the end we are influenced and manipulated by an agenda begun by another. Therefore, it is best to seek many sources on any given subject and determine your own POV from them. Of course along the way actual "truths" will be altered or lost.
