Still, it seems hard to deny that my particular judgment about Beethoven versus Spears is primarily the result of my culture and psychology and upbringing. People in different times and cultures, or with different temperaments, have disagreed and will disagree with me — and they might feel just as strongly about their tastes as I do about mine (of course, they would be ‘wrong’). Clearly, there are aspects of human culture in which the very notion of ‘objective and ultimate truth’ is a category mistake.

According to some spiritualist views of universal mechanics, the "subjective" affects the "objective", and vice-versa, rendering distinction meaningless. I've heard this synthesis of the two perspectives "omnijective", and that term suits me just fine.
