Is truth a fantasy?

Is truth a fantasy?

Maybe, sometimes, we actually are able to verify that some of our beliefs do in fact correspond to reality, but until then, aren't they mere fantasy?

Can we in fact actually "think" about truth, or can we only merely fantasize and otherwise conjecture about our alleged "truth" until we actually discover a method for verifying it? Or, maybe the parlance is that we can think about our alleged truth once it has been "realized" as images in our minds.

Could the ultimate purpose of fantasy simply be as a tool for seeking truth? Or, more appropriately, a tool for constructing theories of what truth might be? Or, a tool for discovering paths to truth?
