Human natural subjectivity

Human natural subjectivity is related to the subjectivity inherent to our human nature. Unlike cultural, personal or developmental subjectivity, our natural subjectivity is universal and common to us all.

There are tow forms of natural subjectivity: perceptual subjectivity and conceptual subjectivity. The first one is related to the subjectivity of our elements of percetion and what we know about the world from our senses. The latter one is related to the subjectivity of the way we conceive the world.

Our world-view is humanly subjective, not only due to biological or neuro-physiological limitations to conceive reality, but because we didn’t even evolve to conceive the world’s reality. Our mind evolved for one purpose: self-preservation. And realistic world-views are not a necessary condition for this purpose. The idea that we perceive and conceive the world as it is is wrong. Both perception and conception are shaped by a nature of self-preservation.

Perceptual subjecitvity
Perceptual subjectivity is related to the subjectivity of the world we perceive through our senses. The elements of perception that we are most interested in are our perception of time, space and objects.

The idea of objects

The unreality of ‘Being’
The unreality of causality
The unreality of time and temporality

Conceptual subjectivity
The unreality of the supernatural
The pursuit of comfort
