Sometime, all it takes for the solid angularity of facts to dissipate is a little spin. It's timeless.

Nietzsche could have also been a comedian, there will always be numerous interpretations, even those that are in opposition, but that doesn't magical erase the existence of facts in regards to reality.

Even the instances where ignorance prevents the facts from being known by anyone living, it doesn't obliterate said facts, it only prevents such people from seeing them. Not being able to see or comprehend facts does not disqualify their existence

but your are correct with your words, the quote however is just ironic

Dusty, I appreciate you comment.

Also, time has a way of healing all things...if only by its distortions.

In the future, something that humanity considered to be a fact
may be considered as a misinterpretation of reality.

Facts are not changing,
it is mankind´s interpretation of what we call reality that changes.
right?

I like this one. The nuance of erosion is nice.
