    Dear Joe
    Is it so terribly difficult to understand the S/O-intellect idea? You have
    read "Zen and the Art .." haven't you? In it the emergence of the
    subject/object metaphysics with the early Greeks is described, in my
    opinion this perfectly and seamlessly describes the emergence of the
    intellectual level. The metaphysical "M" is taken over by the MOQ so
    the S/O remains. What is so problematic in understanding that?
    Whether you agree is something else.

    That it means "...intellect apprehends and is a difference between dq
    and sq ... etc. I have problems with understanding (at first glance, but
    willing to discuss ;). Words?! Social era people spoke words. Look at
    it this non-philosophical way: Ancient people (social era) accepted the
    myths, nobody asked if this was OBJECTIVELY true in contrast to
    SUBJECTIVE fairy tales. The value of dividing experience in this s/o
    manner IS THE INTELLECTUAL LEVEL. Full stop. Your comments
    or objections are welcome, but it's a good start if you understood it.
    Sincerely Bo

    Maybe to understand is to accept? But that's another discussion.
