Another point-- Are you saying that the completely objective "I" has total control over the observable "me"? For instance, have all dogs decided to be interested in sniffing each other's butts, or is this tendency other-determined, with natural selection as the "other"? Are humans not interested in each other's butts because their "I"'s have decided it, or because humans are interested in Humanny things, not Doggy things, and dogs are interested in doggy things, not humanny things.....

There are a great many logically unsound premises in your previous statement that can be explored ! What do you think?
