They all entail human reflexivity to the extent that they entail honesty. To be compulsively objective is to avoid all forms of reflexivity, and so therefore to avoid dealing honestly with all forms of intimate human relationships. If one is seeking to avoid all forms of intimate human relationships---what is one free do deal with? One may deal with those things and processes which MINIMIZE CHANGE and considerations of HUMAN INVOLVEMENTS IN CHANGE. Compulsively objective people may focus upon inanimate things and those aspects of inanimate things which are unchanging; i.e., with ETERNAL LAWS which describe what does NOT CHANGE over time WITHIN THE PROCESSES OF CHANGE. Compulsively objective people may not focus upon animate beings because all animate beings are ultimately intimately inter-related through evolution. Any open and honest study of animate beings ultimately point back to their common origins and intimate inter-relationships. To minimize encounters with reflexive processes compulsively objective people must minimize considerations of animate beings. Of course, ultimately it is impossible to avoid consideration of reflexive change---because ultimately all considerations of "things" point back in time to the beginning of time when all "change", things, and processes began; to the beginning of all that is and has been. Ultimately being compulsively objective is a futile endeavor; but if one is oneself compulsively objective it seems best to put off as long as possible dealing with the futility of being compulsively objective. Then of course in the end it becomes tragically obvious how futile it is to continue trying to be compulsively objective---perhaps after it is too late to change in integrative ways through careful reflection upon the way in which one is oneself changing in a changing cosmos. Ultimately all human activities which involve success, enjoyment, meaning and satisfaction entail reflexivity. We cannot meaningfully enjoy our successes and satisfaction while being compulsively objective about them---especially not if we are being successfully objective! (c) 2005 by Paul A.
