Your semantics can't make their way to my mind with this choice of syntax. I guess you missed my post about doing your ideas a disservice with inaccessible prosaics.

At any rate, if you mean you acknowledge the duality, but separate or dismiss the subjective component for some reason, then I have to disagree. These _particular_ relationships have a dualistic and _complimentary_ nature. That is, they complement each other to _produce_ the relationship. A photon wouldn't be a photon without its wave properties; the same goes for its particle properties.

For the same reason, you can't separate the subjective and objective. They _complement_ each other. Remember that the context of our "experience and analysis" is the human mind. The mind can never know objective reality directly, just approximate it through experience (the subjective component); but that very observation asserts that there is also an objective reality to subjectively experience and analyse.
