Truth – it’s all in your head

Truth - it's all in your head
The truth is out there
Truth - it's all in your head
The truth cannot be out there

"Truth cannot be out there – cannot exist independently of the human mind – because sentences cannot so exist, or be out there. The world is out there, but descriptions of the world are not. Only descriptions of the world can be true or false. The world on its own – unaided by the describing activities of humans – cannot.

The world does not speak. Only we do."

– Richard Rorty
