I'd say Hiram that we naturally categorise what is going on in our own minds and what we observe going on around us, which is the root of this subjective and objective division. Objectivity and subjectivity are not invalid ways of thinking, but the way we are currently educated, causes most people to make this division at the expense of personal introspection - i.e. examining ones own life and behaviour, with the intentions of doing what is right and good.
"Objectivity and subjectivity are not invalid ways of thinking." I am afraid they are when there is a tendency to confuse the two, as in the apparent quest to find objective meaning/morality, the object may well be out there, but whatever meaning is understood is the property of a conscious subject . In your second statement, I am glade that you look within, again situations may present themselves but that which is right and good is a subjective process.
