I do not know how many of you guys are like me, but I seem to have a problem with the “truth.”
No, it is not because I am always guilty of something that I cannot tell the truth. It is actually because many of the things that I was made to believe were the truth, turned out to be… not the exact absolute truth!

Let’s try that high school subject History. While you were still a student, when you were made to read the history of… whatever, were you not led to believe that what you read was the truth? If so, what will you think when you eventually find out that history can be influenced by the victors?
How about Astronomy? Were you among those who were initially made to believe that there were 9 planets in our solar system? So, what happened when they decided that Pluto was not a planet? And then, again, when they reconsidered and declared that Pluto is actually a planet?
Shall we go to Medical Science? How long have the authorities in this field held that the brain reaches maturity at a certain age and that it’s all downhill from there? It is actually unfair to those who believed that claim because according to current studies, those who believed that “truth” were denied the chance to maximize their potential that can be achieved thru Neuroplasticity.
But then, of course, there are more ways on how the “Truth” can be abused and that is why I said the “truth” is the problem.
That is also the reason why I thought of coming up with this project…
Maybe to point out a few things that aren’t so true, after all.
Well, at least, I plan to give it a try.
