‘I’ is the subject that cannot be objectified.

Try it.

Each attempt to turn ‘I’ into an object for scrutiny or description
shows ‘I’ turning up again as subject regarding that object.

Talk about a slippery fish!

But ‘wee-me’ keeps on casting its net,
hoping to catch that fish,
hoping to dissect it,
label its parts,
write a learned paper about it,
teach the world how to catch it
transform and transcend it once and for all.

The big fishy I-eye just watches.

No comment. No preference. No change.
