In retrospect, I now know what it was about reading “Open Secret” that stunned me into total bewilderment. My sensations told me that his words had given me a glimpse into the heart of “The Big Picture,” and that this glimpse cast serious doubts about the nature of reality. If consciousness is the context for truth, then amnesia obscures 90 percent of what truth is all about. We occupy a small slice of what the truth might be, using amnesia to send the rest of the story to the back of the mind where we can dismiss it because it raises serious questions about the view we defend as “the truth.” If you look at consciousness as the whole story, we occupy the end product of consciousness, the part that features the sum of what we do to dismiss truth as false. TAG, or “The Anti-Truth Game” describes how we fill time 'at war with the truth' about truth, in order to maintain our preferred rendition of what we want truth to be.
If you can consider that truth is unitary, then truth is consciousness, featuring us playing TAG with it. This puts truth in the driver's seat. If it is what consciousness is, then it is the author of TAG, and amnesia, and how we fill time pretending we can prove truth is false. Truth,
in other words, authors us engaged in its rebuttal. Consciousness is truth featuring us playing TAG with it. Amnesia shields us from the architecture of the game. TAG requires amnesia to keep us in the dark so we can fill time pretending we can prove truth is false. If truth exists as a constant, then the option to prove it is false is zero. This means truth authors us engaged in a no win parody. Time features us stuck in the fiction we can prove truth is false, which is patently absurd if truth provides the context for its own rebuttal.
