A fact, a truth - well that is an incontrovertible reality.

An example that comes to mind is firing a bullet at a paper target.
See the hole?
That is a bullet hole. That is a fact. That is truth you can see. Stick your finger into the opening.
Truth you can touch,

What?
You note that one, perhaps, cannot see a hole?
Cannot touch a hole?


Ah, truth - how elusive you are.

Hey, anymore bullets in this thing?
Yep, you have the truth of it. The truth of it is, the closer a person gets to the truth the fuzzier it gets. Or is that a paradox? If the barber shaves all the men who don't shave their self, who shaves the barber?
