"Truths may be discovered or realised. Just as it is true i like peanut butter, but before i experienced it it could not be so."
But, to use it in the way Kreet and Tacelli do is to think of this newly realised truth as something you created that now resides in your brain, which is just odd and gets odder the more you apply those sorts of terms to a truth.
I think this highlights a bgger problem I've realised*, that dispite all their complaints about how uncouth and base a materialistic view of the universe is the critics of this view probably 'suffer' from it worst of all as their descriptions of their belief unwittingly drip with highly physical properties from the new-agers and their energies to theists who talk of their god acting on/using nothing as if it is a property to make a universe from and truths that are some sort of object that "resides" in minds and are maintained beyond human individual realisation by being safeguarded in an eternal mind.
* created and stored in my mind!
