a flash of insight?

I like this insight from the previous post:

...if there is such a stance as objectivity, it would, by its very nature, have to be NON-conceptual. Why? Because concept implies language, which implies culture, which implies group, which implies context, which denies something called, "objectivity."

I have noted the denial of objectivity previously, but the notion of such a thing, if it does exist, having to be non-conceptual by nature is something I had not realized before.

Of course, those who have gone "beyond words" have not find a position of pristine, detached objectivity, but rather a compelling and absolute sense of connection and/or connecteness to all things and all people.

Decidedly NOT objective.
