___In Search for the Truth

An exercise in truth recognition

"All truth (or lie), passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
quoted Arthur Schopenhauer

Did you had the feeling that you live in a time where your perception of what happens shifted strangely. That you are confronted with statements and behavior of people whose reality seems to be the opposite of everything you know? Calm down, you're not alone.

To help you to survive mentally we've created an exercise in truth recognition and to spot and handle perception management (the 'art' of shading the truth).
