Yehonasan

Related concept from Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh, Peirush on Etz Chaim, p 49:

"There is only one Existence, but it has multiple appearances; each [creature] perceives Existence according to its valence, for this is the deep meaning of the Toras HaArachin, Torah of Relativity, for those who understand. ...Contradictory appearances are [merely] in the eye of the beholder. ...The [ultimate] root is the perception of unity, for everything is one. Anyone who differs with this lacks the perception of the light of unity. That is the general state of the souls of BY"A. For the light of unity can only be perceived by souls of Atzilus and above."

Yehonasan

Hence not everybody's views are equally true. The more of the various appearances of Existence a person can embrace the more true to Existence is their perspective. If a person can only acknowledge one way of perceiving Existence, their perspective has only one small degree of truth.

Your explanation fits well for someone who prefers a path of peace and can repsect others' views, but how does it work to explain the behaviour of someone who fights strongly for "his" version of truth - is such a person just limited because he does not see as far as this model would allow?

steve mcqueen

sorry, " " should have been around "truth", not "his"

He is, of course, limited. However, part of his "truth" is that truth is limited.

I forgot to mention that the Alter Rebbe speaks of this concept in the Compiler's Introduction to Tanya
