The piece I wrote on truth seems to have set off a storm of letters. Obviously, a lot of my subscribers are interested in the truth and the reason for telling (or avoiding) the truth. So I want to write a bit more on truth (which happens to be one of my favorite subjects).
I think it's not only morally right to stick with the truth, I believe it's necessary for your health to stay with the truth. I previously wrote that there is a close relationship between untruth (lies) and insanity. For just as a lie is a distortion of reality, a disease is a distortion of the physical.
