Truth is ungraspable
The really real and the truest truth is ungraspable by human beings. Our minds are limited, holding but a simulation of reality, capable of only producing low-res thoughts and concepts.
It makes sense that the most profound experiences (e.g psychedelic, spiritual etc) are totally ineffable.
