Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but
most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
Human kind ... cannot bear very much reality (T.S. Elliot)
And isn't it a bad thing to be deceived about the truth, and a good thing to know what the truth is? For I assume that by knowing the truth you mean knowing things as they really are. (Plato)
The philosopher is in love with truth, that is, not with the changing world of sensation, which is the object of opinion, but with the unchanging reality which is the object of knowledge. (Plato)
Truthfulness. He will never willingly tolerate an untruth, but will hate it as much as he loves truth... And is there anything more closely connected with wisdom than truth? (Plato)
Then may we not fairly plead in reply that our true lover of knowledge naturally strives for truth, and is not content with common opinion, but soars with undimmed and unwearied passion till he grasps the essential nature of things with the mental faculty fitted to do so, that is, with the faculty which is akin to reality, and which approaches and unites with it, and begets intelligence and truth as children, and is only released from travail when it has thus reached knowledge and true life and satisfaction? (Plato)
What is at issue is the conversion of the mind from the twilight of error to the truth, that climb up into the real world which we shall call true philosophy. (Plato)
The object of knowledge is what exists and its function to know about reality. (Plato)
And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve the title of Philosophers. (Plato)
When the mind's eye rests on objects illuminated by truth and reality, it understands and comprehends them, and functions intelligently; but when it turns to the twilight world of change and decay, it can only form opinions, its vision is confused and its beliefs shifting, and it seems to lack intelligence. (Plato)
One trait in the philosopher's character we can assume is his love of the knowledge that reveals eternal reality, the realm unaffected by change and decay. He is in love with the whole of that reality, and will not willingly be deprived even of the most insignificant fragment of it - just like the lovers and men of ambition we described earlier on. (Plato)
Modern definitions of truth, such as those as pragmatism and instrumentalism, which are practical rather than contemplative, are inspired by industrialisation as opposed to aristocracy. (Bertrand Russell)

(David Hume, 1737) And though the philosopher may live remote from business, the genius of philosophy, if carefully cultivated by several, must gradually diffuse itself throughout the whole society, and bestow a similar correctness on every art and calling.
Leibniz, 1670) It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish
propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with
certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility
can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause
or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches
us that it is a fact in nature. ...
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity. ... I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial, cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general.
If we abide by the rules of Science, which aims to unite a
posteriori / empirical evidence from our Senses with a priori
reason / logic from Principles, it is clear that we can now describe Matter
(Reality) more simply in terms of Spherical Standing Waves in Space (rather
than discrete particles and forces / fields in space and time).
And as Wittgenstein rightly observed, Philosophical problems arise when language goes on holiday.
The purpose of this website is to explain and solve these previous philosophical problems that arose because of the wrong metaphysical foundations of our language (currently founded on four separate things - Matter as 'Particles' generating 'Forces / Fields' in 'Space' and 'Time').
Very briefly summarised;
To unite these four separate things we must describe Reality from One Thing. The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter is founded on One Principle which describes One Substance, Space, and its Properties as a Wave-Medium. Matter Exists as Spherical Standing Waves in Space.
The discrete 'particle' effect of matter is formed by the Wave-Center of the Spherical Standing Waves. (See Diagrams below.)
Time is caused by wave Motion (as spherical wave motions of Space which cause matter's activity and the phenomena of time).
Forces / Fields result from wave interactions of the Spherical In and Out Waves with other matter in the universe which change the location of the Wave-Center (and which we 'see' as a 'force accelerating a particle').
+ = This (very rough!) diagram shows how the Spherical In and Out Waves form a Standing Wave around the Wave-Center 'particle'.
It is also recommended that you read on the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter at http://www.spaceandmotion.com which contains a brief summary and links to all the main pages of the Website.
(Lee Smolin, 1997) A successful unification of quantum theory and relativity would necessarily be a theory of the universe as a whole. It would tell us, as Aristotle and Newton did before, what space and time are, what the cosmos is, what things are made of, and what kind of laws those things obey. Such a theory will bring about a radical shift - a revolution - in our understanding of what nature is. It must also have wide repercussions, and will likely bring about, or contribute to, a shift in our understanding of ourselves and our relationship to the rest of the universe.
Einstein, 1954) The development during the present century is characterized
by two theoretical systems essentially independent of each other: the theory
of relativity and the quantum theory. The two systems do not directly contradict
each other; but they seem little adapted to fusion into one unified theory.
For the time being we have to admit that we do not possess any general theoretical
basis for physics which can be regarded as its logical foundation.
If, then, it is true that the axiomatic basis of theoretical physics cannot be extracted from experience but must be freely invented, can we ever hope to find the right way? I answer without hesitation that there is, in my opinion, a right way, and that we are capable of finding it. I hold it true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed. (Albert Einstein, 1954)
(George Berkeley, 1710) Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of scepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words.
To the best of my knowledge the Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter was first formalised by Mathematical Physicist Milo Wolff around 1986. I independently came to the same conclusion in 1997 (from reading Feynman, Lorentz and Einstein) and subsequently found the work of Milo Wolff in 1998. Since then we have worked together and believe that we can now explain most of the major problems of Physics, Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Theology. I know that these are big claims but they are founded on the method of Science (that logic from Principles must correspond with observation and experiment). I try to abide by the following ideals;
Those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve the title
of Philosophers. (Plato, 380BC)
The scientist imposes two things, namely truth & sincerity, imposes them upon himself & upon other scientists. (Schrodinger, 1967)
Speech devoted to truth should be straightforward and plain. (Seneca, 60AD)
Under construction. For now a nice Buddhist poem on truth. Please see articles on the left of page - truth and reality are simple once known, and there is no knowledge more important!
The things of the world and its inhabitants are subject to change.
They are combinations of elements that existed before,
and all living creatures are what their past actions made them;
for the law of cause and effect is uniform and without exceptions. 
But in the changing things there is a constancy of law,
and when the law is seen there is truth.
The truth lies hidden in Samsara as the permanent in its changes. 
Truth desires to appear;
truth longs to become conscious;
truth strives to know itself. 
There is truth in the stone, for the stone is
and no power in the world, no god, no man, no demon, can destroy its existence.
But the stone has no consciousness. 
There is truth in the plant and its life can
the plant grows and blossoms and bears fruit.
Its beauty is marvellous, but it has no consciousness. 
There is truth in the amimal; it moves about
and perceives its surroundings;
it distinguishes and learns to choose.
There is consciousness, but it is not yet the consciousness of Truth.
It is a consciousness of self only. 
The consciousness of self dims the eyes of the
mind and hides the truth.
It is the origin of error, it is the source of illusion, it is the germ of evil. 
Self begets selfishness.
There is no evil but what flows from self.
There is no wrong but what is done by the assertion of self. 
Self is the beginning of all hatred,
of iniquity and slander, of impudence and indecency,
of theft and robbery, of oppression and bloodshed.
Self is Mara, the tempter, the evildoer, the creator of mischief. 
Self entices with pleasures. Self promises a
Self is the veil of Maya, the enchanter.
But the pleasures of self are unreal,
its paradisian labyrinth is the road to misery,
and its fading beauty kindles the flames of desires
that never can be satisfied. 
Who shall deliver us from the power of self?
Who shall save us from misery?
Who shall restore us to a life of blessedness? 
There is misery in the world of Samsara;
there is much misery and pain.
But greater than all the misery is the bliss of truth.
Truth gives peace to the yearning mind;
it conquers error;
it quenches the flames of desires;
it leads to Nirvana. 
Blessed is he who has found the peace of Nirvana.
He is at rest in the struggles and tribulations of life;
he is above all changes; he is above birth and death;
he remains unaffected by the evils of life. 
Blessed is he who has found enlightenment.
He conquers, although he may be wounded;
he is glorious and happy, although he may suffer;
he is strong, although he may break down under the burden of his work;
he is immortal, although he may die.
The essence of his being is purity and goodness. 
Blessed is he who has attained the sacred state
for he is fit to work out the salvation of his fellow beings.
The truth has taken its abode in him.
Perfect wisdom illumines his understanding,
and righteousness ensouls the purpose of all his actions. 
The truth is a living power for good, indestructible
Work the truth out in your mind, and spread it amoung mankind,
for truth alone is the saviour from evil and misery.
The Buddha has found the truth and the truth has been proclaimed by the Buddha!
Blessed be the Buddha!
