...As far as i know, the Buddha did not teach "everything is impermanent" but taught "all conditioned things are impermanent". Not very surprising omission by someone who denies the existence of "the truth".A well known example ... Even the truth of the ubiquitous maxim "Everything is impermanent" cannot be carelessly generalizable onto the world of conventional realities nor to the world of comprehensive ultimate realities.
umm, I didn't mention Buddha said so-and-so.
Please let me see a good single absolute statement about "the truth" [without any qualifiers/qualifications] which could not be rendered untrue when viewing from specific perspectives. [if there is such thing as "the truth"]
Here is some [bad] examples:
- (which can also be 10 or 1 or others depending on context).
- the earth is round
- when the ancients said "the earth is flat", they were not lying, they were just stating "the truth" for them.
- There is no such thing as "the truth".
- There are only contextual truths.
Thanks in advance. I'll come back here next week, if dhammas allow me.
