We are well in to the Oscar Pistorius trial. Tragic twists are the order of the day. What I find fascinating is the way witness testimony to the event differs. Quite amazing. Nobody sees things the same way. You’re constantly left with the question – what actually happened? Well, that’s the nature of evidence.
I suppose we can only see and experience through the interpretations of others and these can differ immensely. Even Oscar Pistorius, who was and is at the heart of the tragedy, experiences the event through his own interpretation.
So we are left, like we’re always are, with – what actually happened? I often ask myself if there’s some “place” or some “state of being” where, “what actually happened” beyond our interpretations, is recorded. I wonder if one day it will all be played back to us in its pure objective and “truthful” state. But then by saying this I suppose I’m assuming all sorts of other things.
Beyond our interpretations – is there such a place? 🙂
