This is the case because that which we would try to prove refers back upon our selves and others dear to us. Such reflexive reference is not accidental; it is the essence of that which we would propose to prove. We cannot be without bias about that which is essentially self-referential. We are bound to have strong feelings, attitudes, beliefs and convictions about anything which is essentially self-referential. We cannot be scientific and objective with personal and communal integrity when we are considering that which is essentially self-referential. If we try to do so we are being dishonest in collusive games of mutual self deception. In such games we are bound to be arbitrary, capricious, discriminatory and without integrative principles in terms of which to do justly, love mercy and walk humble in the presence of God. This is because in such games dishonesty undermines coherence. Personal and communal integrity must be based upon ideals, values and attitudes which transcend objectivity and science with their manipulative patterns of behavior. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
