Reality vs Truth

Is it a duck, or a rabbit?

Duck or Rabbit Illusion Photo

“Kaninchen und Ente”(“Rabbit and Duck”) from the 23 October 1892 issue of Fliegende Bl├Ątter

Reality is our interpretation of truth. It is therefore, possible to have multiple realities describing one truth, they can even be in contradiction with each other.
The reality is that this image is a duck, and it is also a rabbit. You can see Mona Lisa in it, or a solution to global warming, or if you try hard enough you might be able to see the next market crash.

Truth, on the other hand is directionless, it’s objective, and unlike our interpretations it doesn’t conform a specific narrative.
The truth is that this photo is made to be both a rabbit and a duck while being neither. It’s a paradox made to make a point, and that’s all there is to it.
