Qui es veritas?

What is Truth? Is it subjective or objective? Is it rational or empirical? Is there one truth or many? By what standard can we define and employ it? What is its purpose and does it matter? Is it meant to be hidden or dismissed because ignorance is bliss or set upon a hilltop that all may be enlightened? How shall we acquire it? Can we ever know it? Is it an ideal or reality? Who has authority to define or use it? Can we as human beings judge ourselves by such truth(s) that we find and erect standards accordingly? And who will keep us to account? Why is Truth to be desired? For if we cannot answers these, we are truly lost. I make no claims to finding the answers, only to capturing the glimpses, the lifting of the veil, before the door is shut again.
