Celebrate Subjectivity
    Mystics though the ages have declared that the physical world is an illusion.
    Quantum physicists in modern times have confirmed that the world doesn't exist until we look at it.
    The human brain is the most complex and amazing system to which we have access. It is the arbiter of all things, and our reference point as we seek to interpret who and where we are. We cannot say, with any certainty, that anything exists outside the human brain.

    This means that subjectivity is one of the gifts of Human Experience: it can (and should) be celebrated; it cannot be dismissed.
    When I feel cold in a warm room, I am cold. My subjective experience is not changed by the number on the thermostat or the subjective experience of people who feel warm. My reality is mine alone. Your reality is yours.
    For many people this is a new and difficult concept. We have been socialized, and are accustomed to adapting. We are taught that there is 'objectivity', and that it must take precedence over our personal understandings. When the thermostat reads hot, we are supposed to feel hot: if we don't we are deemed sick, and medical intervention is sought to restore conformity.
    As quantum physics research releases us from the oppression of imaginary 'objectivity' we become free to explore the Universe we perceive. We can embrace it as it exists, glorying in it, and we can entertain, adopt or reject any additional ideas which it presents to us. We are at liberty to refine our personal relationship with the physical plane, using our mental and emotional gifts as guides.
     When New Age practitioners speak and write publicly about their work and research, they have often been misunderstood, or discounted and mocked. As society Shifts, there is some recognition that perhaps it is objectivity which needs to be reexamined.
     The Victorian poet Christina Rossetti died in 1894 at the age of 64. Part of her legacy was the question “Who Has Seen the Wind?” ***  In 1947 novelist W. O. Mitchell asked the question again, using it as the title of a book in which a child becomes and adult, acted upon by forces no one can watch or see or measure or prove. There is no chart of physical adjustments which can measure the changes we call human maturity.
    Contact is a 1985 novel by Carl Sagan, made into a movie in 1997. It suggests an encounter with intelligent life from another place in space. The story includes a conversation between an astronomer and a cleric, in which the scientist asks for proof of God. In response, the priest asks “Did you love your father?” and when answered in the affirmative, requests proof.
    The most impactful feelings and events in life are entirely subjective.  None of us can know how someone else experiences love; or warmth; or the presence of a deity; or a fear of spotted dogs. We cannot announce that our knowing is somehow better, or more valid than the knowing of someone else. The sole certainty is that my reality is mine alone, and what happens to me is how I learn about myself.

***Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.
