Objectivists may regard objective facts as having great potential importance to reflexive human relationships---because of their relative ignorance of the dynamics of reflexive human relationships. The fact that it is possible to design and carry out controlled objective experiments in which impersonal objects behave in highly predictable ways does not indicate that: (1) There is no limit to the accuracy of possible prediction, for in fact it is always the case that quantitative predications involve some non-zero level of uncertainty. (2) That it will be possible to achieve such levels of predictability in regards to the evolution of human relationships and/or behavior. The discovery of quantum mechanical phenomena and of the stochastic processes of chaos restored some level of honesty about the limitations which nature places upon human knowledge. The demonstration of predictability in objective relationships does not demonstrate that there will be predictability in subjective relationships. It is a dangerous assumption to believe that the character of controlled objective relationships can tell us anything definitive about the character of reflexive relationships which by their nature are not objective and cannot be controlled. Even the objective relationships are apprehended within the context of reflexive procedures which are not predictable. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
