Of The Beholder

This blog is about the way we see things.

The way we see things is the way we see things. It is nothing more, it is nothing less, but it is the beginning of everything. 

We Cannot See Objectively

Objectivity does not exist In the human mind.

Objectivity: “the quality or character of being objective; lack of favoritism toward one side or another; freedom from bias,” Dictionary

“Objectivity is the subject’s delusion that observing can be done without him,” von Foerster

“True objectivity would mean standing outside the human body, off the earth even, observing both without bias and without a human brain,” Diane Ackerman

This blog suggests that humans are not able to be objective.

We Only See Subjectively

Subjectivity does exist in the human mind.

“All experience is subjective,” Gregory Bateson

“We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are,” Anais Nin

Subjectivity: “the quality of being based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions; the quality of existing in someone’s mind rather than the external world,” Dictionary

Most people look into their own mind in order to understand what is going on in the world. This famous quote explains: “the eye sees in things what it looks for, and it looks for what is already in the mind,” Scientific School of Police, Paris.

What is already going on in our minds may not be what is currently going on in the world.

This blog suggests that humans are not able to avoid being subjective.
