Cool Trick for Telling the True from the False

There is a principle, a simple rule of thumb which I’ve always found very useful in deciding what is true and what is false:

  • If something is false, the closer you look at it the more diffuse, the less clear it becomes.
  • Whereas if something is true, the closer you look, the clearer it becomes.
