RE: "...Objects do not act they are acted upon.."


Any and all objects have a potential to act which is part and parcel of their objective characteristics... "balls" (for example) "roll", this action is contained as a potential in the characteristic "roundness" (a characteristic which is inseparable from the object characterized thus).

The "self-glorify" inclusion in the post was my attempt to discern WHY some people refuse to see that their action is determined by objective characteristics.

Humans, because of self-consciousness, can be said to direct the self by way of self-awareness. This ALLOWS that an individual may *will* themselves to perform within certain parameters outside of what is
"ideal" (assuming *ideal* action is that action which is prescribed by
an objective logic-- thus will represents actions contrary to logic).

As such, *self-glorify* (in the post) refers to the illogic of the position which you support (your position: intentionality is related to human will such that will is contrary or opposed to a prior intentionality though is justified by a self which intends).
