What the hell is truth? Why so many manuscripts. So many revisions. So many copies. So many edited books. What was the truth in the first place, and could you ever know it, since it happened long ago and was forgotten? And so we never reach perfection, so how will we ever know our changes are right in an imperfect world? I mean we can be making changes forever in an imperfect world and never, ever get closer to perfection. And nobody will ever know because nobody is perfect.
Take Law and Order, the TV series, for example. Here, you have a law case done in one hour. But in reality it takes decades in some cases, if ever to finish a case. Or you have a single bible verse, which took years to do but isn’t mentioned.
