        Dialetheism is the view that some statements can be both true and false
        simultaneously. More precisely, it is the belief that there can be a 
true
        statement whose negation is also true. Such statements are called "true
        contradictions", or dialetheia.

"Doublethink" as defined in "1984" is almost exactly this.


The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound
truth.
