A Search for Truth

Imagine a former era

Is it safe to say that the further away we are from an event, the less accurate is our assessment of the situation? If I am a participant, or sitting next to someone who relates the events of the moment, will my version of the story be accurate? How about a year later? 10 years later?

Sometimes we get so absorbed in our own lifetime, that our imagination cannot fathom anything other than what we see around us.
