I am "truthfully" intrigued by the use of reflection as a verb. In effect, that is a truth that is becoming more and more prevalent in the American reality. Thank you, Krista, for such a program. Always engaging, always stimulating. Reflecting on Levin's statement that "we're getting closer to the truth even though we can't always prove it." is not an exception. The reality is just when, where and how we define "truth". Time and space in conjunction with the "howness", a term frequently used by philosopher, mystics especially Sufis, all affect what falls in or out of truth. What is this truth to which we are getting close? Throughout human history, humans have been getting closer and closer to a truth, no matter what that truth is, be it scientific (mathematical, physical...) on one side or philosophical (metaphysical, spiritual, religious...) on the other. The cumulative knowledge make it so, in general, that truth is clearer, more so as we incrementally advance that knowledge. I believe that this doesn’t mean that someone, somewhere throughout the time of accumulating the human knowledge, did not reach, somehow, the truth at its utmost certainty. I believe that Levin’s statement might have been more accurate had it stated that we are getting closer to proving the truth rather than “… we can’t always prove it”. If the question is about the universe, the truth is more so provable mathematically in the most primordial and physical sense of Mathematics, than ever before. If the question is the creation, particularly beyond the “zero nanomoment” and the creator of that Universe, the truth is still so fluid and not as physically provable without the help of some other finite or infinite dimension, be it faith, metaphysics or some other logical or illogical way, since proving non-physical is not always achievable with the physical alone. The truth is that, admittedly, we are limited in what we can know about the “Truth”, if at least temporarily. Great show, great subjects, Krista. Thank you, Moulay
