The Sexy Truth
"What you you think truth is?"
"Everybody knows what truth is. Truth is telling it like it is. Having your thoughts match the facts, having your sentences match the universe. ..."
"... It's not just a correct relationship between abstract thought and concrete reality. I think it's a personal relationship - in fact it's a sexual relationship between us and reality."
"Yes. To know thruth is to be impregnated, to become pregnant in your mind. [To conceive]. Truth is the mind's lover, the mind's husband."
"I never thought of truth that way. But what is truth to a man then? A homosexual relationship?"
"No, because homosexuals don't get pregnant. It's a heterosexual relationship to men too - all men - because our minds are female. All minds are wombs."
