Does seeing reality as it is favor our survival or disfavor it? This has direct implications for the nature of truth and whether truth is even of any value to our species. What if knowing the truth is adverse to our survival? What if knowing reality as it really is drives us insane and results in a selfish sociopathic mind that manipulates beings for it's own exclusive advantage? Should we pursue the truth in such a case? Is the knowledge of truth of greater value than the survival of the human race?
