well I guess you're right, when you view it from your perspective, but the belief in objectivity says that there is an entire realm of things that exist independent of the mind
when you understand that all is in the mind then there is no objectivity. ask yourself why there was a movement to move away from subjective thinking. our whole experience of life is always subjective (if you choose to split things up into subjective/objective)
isn't it wise to figure things out that way than listen to what school, news, and other media tell you?
there is no danger in considering things outside of those realms. in using your own experience to learn. what else do we have? a bunch of facts and measurements that we say
are true? a bunch of scientific laws? and how true are they? doesn't all of what we know
about science break down when we go into the quantam field? there is no knowledge in this, just random facts and measurements and specificity, and you can follow out this way of thinking until the end of time but its not going to solve anything.
sure, we shouldn't listen to someone's crazy story about a giant lizard king that implanted our bodies with cotton pills, but that's common sense - we don't need to split things up into subjective/objective just to guard against that. when we discard all subjectivity though, we become more machine than man, and discard the most important element to the pursuit of all knowledge - US
! we are the ones existing here and experiencing! and that means a lot!
