When your eye is working best, are you "aware" of your eye? Maybe
when the "self" is functioning best, it is not "self" aware (lots
of good psychological evidence for this). An old saying, "There is
no limit how much good can be accomplished if no one worries about
who is going to get the credit (profit). (The is a good one for objectivists
to ponder)

On one hand, you proclaim the importance of the subjective events,
but on the other you impose the "objective" truths. This switching
back and forth between fundamentally different methodological approaches,
without knowing it, is the source of confusion in your analysis. (I
would guess.)
