You find truth by seeking it out -- then you jump aboard a train that never stops.

I think truth is a human construct, and because of that I dont believe in a universal truth. I do not include scientific facts as truths, but consider them more of a repeatable natural phenomena since they dont really have anything to do with us (ie physics and chemistry will continue when we get wiped off this planet). Through time humans have created "truths" based on our beliefs and the thought systems we have created (economics, politics, religion) that rely entirely on getting enough people to subscribe to your "truth" to survive. Just look at politics, gender identity and religion to get a dose of conflicting "truths". I think we build truths to understand our world and create mental models that help us thrive (even if "us" is those in power that create or perpetuate these truths for their own gain). The idea of finding truth is almost like a wild goose chase. Some of them we might uncover as natural phenomena/facts (ie theres life outside our planet... we either find it or we dont) and others we may never resolve (is there a God, or is a fetus a human being).

Trust is the amalgamation of aspects and experiences. If you think there is only one viewpoint or way to see a thing, you have not found the truth. You have to be able to see the same thing from multiple points-of-view and construct the whole thing in your mind. This gives you a better understanding of the context of the thing. . . which is an integral part of the truth of it. . . because it defines what influences who sees it and how. Which will always be a part of constructing an un-truth and so it MUST be a part of what IS truth.
