I was thinking along the lines of Universal Truths - The moon is a Universal Truth. If one looked at a reflection of the Moon and thought it was the actual moon they would be wrong in their assumption, whether fragmentary or not.
"Israel Putman, crawling on hand and knee to kill the she-wolf in her den, partially affords a parallel by which to estimate the chemist's courage in groping in the dark after the ugly truth; but Putman killed his wolf, and Tyndall was devoured by his! "Sub mensa desperatio" should be the motto on his shield." Isis P 176/1
Thought I would put in a bit of HPB's humour

HPB gave us a great image of truth. There is one Truth, and many
reflections, like the reflections of the full moon on the waters of a
lake. Each reflection is a fragment of the original truth, but none
contains the whole truth. It is also stated that two diametrically
opposite statements can both be true. It's all a matter of point of
view. When we start making decisions (judgements) about who is right
and who is wrong, whose truth is more true and whose is less true, we
get onto a very slippery slope, and most likely we slide a bit, or a
lot. Humanity's history is full of atrocities, all based on this
process, which all boils down to "my god is better than your god."
Why not live and let live? Who among us can really honestly say we
know what is right for another? Isn't it enough of a challenge to
figure out what is right for ourselves?
