The human brain the only organ known to attempt to research itself while dulluding itself to believe it is capable of true objectiveness.

Corection meadd-- the "Western acculturated human mind" is the only phenomenon capable of believing it has sufficient objectivity to research itself.

The Eastern perspective is one of "intersubjectivity" - a perspective that understands that the polar extreme of perfect objectivity is as absurd and unbalanced as the concept of perfect subjectivity.

There is always a "Middle Way", and polar extremes are almost always a caricature of reality.
