This is one of those things that is just true, like “everything is bullshit” is pure bullshit. “don’t trust anything” is the kind of shallow statement that you shouldn’t trust, “language is a pretty mediocre way of expressing oneself” is expressed quite mediocrely and so on.
Some things are just true. So I have to ask — if it’s just true, why do you need to say it? Who is the conceivable audience for something that’s just true? Obviously not somebody else, because it’s quite obnoxious to go around telling people things that are just true, obviously. So some part of myself that needs to be told this?
Yes. No question, but there is a side of oneself that needs to be told “Some things are just true” and a side of oneself that needs to be told “there isn’t anything that’s just true.”
Why is there two sides to the self? Because if there’s one side to the self, then you need to force somebody else to play the other part, and that is honestly, a waste of both of your times!
