from TM’s blog:

“Heidegger suggests that truth holds us, we do not hold it.

What is it then, heavy and hot and full of tiny morals? What is this in my head and lap?”

Truth. Truth. Truth. Truth.

For the morality of humans, we say if we do not tell the truth, we have lied. I am not sure I agree or disagree.

In the past months that I have studied how people treat truth in our daily lives, the greatest motivator is fear. Our instinct to protect ourselves works against (or for) us in so many ways. But… does that prove the nonexistence (or existence) of morality in ourselves? Is morality a human creation?
