Is anything driven to the extreme, or the absolute, a dead end? If we take the ideas of truth, good and bad, imperfect and perfect, virtue, love (or what Socrates' wanted which was perfect love), ect., all of these are a desire toward an end.
Recently talking about perfection, it was mentioned that it isn't real or doesn't exist. A digression went on about how imperfection exists, but if perfection doesn't exist, then, neither does imperfection. How can one be without the other? In one sense, their is no imperfection, but only difference in existence.
If something false, or a lie, (or whatever one would term as the opposite of the truth), lets use fiction which means "not real", then, if it isn't real, or in one sense, doesn't exist, then neither does the truth, for it is dependant upon something not being true. So what is there? So there is only the reality, not true or false.
