Truth demands our adherence, our conformity. There is no just, no correct argument against Truth, or therefore any just or correct way to act in contravention to Truth – indeed, no possible way, for there can be no way to enact a false or incoherent proposition. It might seem prima facie that it is possible to enact a falsehood. But not so. The only way we can possibly act is in a way that is in agreement with reality, and thus with Truth. We can certainly believe that we are enacting a proposition that is in fact false, and so shape our acts wrongly, as appropriate to circumstances that do not in fact obtain. Acts may err in their aims. But they must conform to reality, or they could not happen.
Consider: we can say, and even perhaps believe, that 276 + 943 = 1,119. But we can’t carry that proposition into practice, no matter what we do. I.e., we cannot demonstrate by our acts that it is true. The most we can do with 276 + 943 = 1,119 is mess up our behaviour. When we mess up a calculation, and then act on that error, what we end up doing is enacting a truth that is not quite apposite to the situation at hand: e.g., cutting at the wrong spot on the plank. The cut in itself is perfectly good. It does just what a cut should do. But it is inapt to our purposes. The defect, then, is not in the cut, but in its fitness to our intentions and apprehensions; which is just to say that the defect is in the fitness of our intentions or apprehensions.
A fortiori then is it impossible to contravene the Truth about how we ought to act. Acts that would contravene the moral Truth actually demonstrate it. Moral Truth is manifest in the disastrous consequences of any collision with it. E.g., you can act as if murder were licit, you can believe that murder is licit, and you can murder on that basis; but you can’t murder licitly. When you then reap the painful consequences of murder, you demonstrate that it is illicit. Or likewise, more concretely, when you ram your head into a boulder under the misapprehension that it won’t hurt, the boulder rams back.
If it is anything at all, Truth is a fact. And there’s no arguing with facts, there is only finding them out and understanding them, adapting to them, fitting ourselves to them. We have no choice in this, other than to begin to effect our death. Truth then is imperative not just logically and epistemologically, but nomologically; in its very being it has the character of Law.
But if Truth is a fact, it is a concrete being. There is no other way to be a fact – which is to say, an accomplished act.
Notice then that a truth is a proposition that has value to a being; in this is its facticity constituted. Truth furthermore comprehends all truths of all facts, including the facts of persons such as we. Comprehension can occur only in the larger, of the smaller. The atom cannot comprehend the bat. Truth comprehends persons. But only a person (or something yet greater) can comprehend a person.
So Truth is a person (or something yet greater). And because he is a fact who demands our conformity to his Law by virtue of his mere being, he is a royal person. Truth is a King.
