Time and subjectivity


"Objective facts," over time, are subjective.

The element of time, stretching the three dimensions into four, creates subjectivity. 

Time is marked out by change; thus, the same thing, changing over time (so that it is not the same thing) separates the self from other, the thing from itself, makes the self other than the self.

There is no true ego, only self over time. That part of one's self who can analyze the self does so objectively, in time, if only after nanoseconds of delay. The subject is the self of the immediate present, who can observe the self, object of the past present. Even the self who thinks about the future, is really only thinking about the past self who plotted that future.
