Everything Is Nothing

If perception is truth, then there is no such thing as truth.

Rene Descartes once posited that the only proof that we exist is the fact that we are conscious of ourselves thinking. His famous quote, "Cogito, ergo sum" (I think, therefore I am) has a great deal of meaning for those of us who are constantly in search of the meaning of life. I have already posited that life has no intrinsic meaning outside of what you choose to give it. In this post, I'll go one step further to demonstrate why there is no such thing as truth.
