I came across a little thing I wrote several years ago and thought you all might find it interesting.

The true or actual state of a matter; conformity with fact or reality; verity; a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like; the state or character of being true; actuality or actual existence; an obvious or accepted fact; truism; platitude; honesty; integrity; truthfulness: ideal or fundamental reality apart from and transcending perceived experience; agreement with a standard or original; accuracy, as of position or adjustment; fidelity or constancy.
Conformity to fact or actuality; a statement proven to be or accepted as true; sincerity, integrity; fidelity to an original or standard; reality, actuality; often truth is that which is considered to be the supreme reality and to have the ultimate meaning and value of existence.
Truth is a comprehensive term that in all its nuances implies accuracy and honesty.
Veracity is adherence to the truth: Veracity is the heart of morality.
I realize I have given many meanings to the word truth, but it seems that our art should deal with truth, and we should come to some kind of common understanding as to what the word means. I hope others have additional comments and that we can come to the same starting line when defining the meaning of truth.
