If I believe I am writing a "Fact" that needed "a small amount of imagination to understand what is meant" ,then I am indeed not writing a fact but more a presumption & that presumed element where the imagination has been used turns the logical thought based on fact into a subjective thought based on fact . The first being a proved Truth that can be built upon, the latter being a theory.
I believe it's this kind of "reasoning" that has caused some fields of science to lose it's direction .
Using The imagination to "understand what is meant" can be helpful but should never be confused as fact .
It's healthy to know the difference between the subjective and objective mind .
The objective part of the mind has evolved using proved or trusted physical fact .In earlier development by our 5 senses aided in later development by science .The subjective part of the mind is within the objective mind and was "created" by the objective mind .
A crucial part of "knowing the Truth" is being able to know when a thought is "objective" or " subjective " .
People whom begin there earlier life being taught to use there objective part of mind are more likely to be more scientifically,mathematically oriented. Whilst those believing there subjective thoughts are in fact a objective thoughts are more likely to believe in Religion or spirituality .
Medicine shows the brain is a physical object, though a subjective part of the brain can argue that the "mind" is a spiritual " thing" .
Reason dictates that you can not have a physical "touchable" object such as a human brain founded on a "thing" which is "non physical " or spiritual .I.E - Life is what it already is.
But spirituality is not based on reason it is based on faith .
Faith being a manifestation of the subjective part of the mind .Believing in something that can not or has not been proved either by our 5 sense's or scientific fact .
This is still in exactly the same context as a sentence saying " sound is subjective " .
Sound is a measurable understandable calculable fact.
You can subjectively choose to not believe in what you see,touch,taste,smell and hear .
Humans do have a unique identity & subjective part of mind.
Our Physical Bodies are all made from exactly the same material and thus are governed by all the same laws of physics/nature .And though slight difference's in physical shape , ear canals for example, will result in slight sound variations between two individuals ,the fundamental structure of sound remains the same for everyone and everything .
