“existing in the mind” from Latin subiectivus “of the subject” from subiectus “lying under, below.” Subjective indicates a mistaken perception, a mental interpretation.

“What do modern psychologists understand as “objective?” They understand it to be that which is external to the mind: the physical, the tangible, the material.

“Yet, they are totally mistaken, because when analysing the term “subjective,” we see that it signifies “sub, under,” that which is below the range of our perceptions. What is below our perceptions? Is it not perhaps the Infernal Worlds? Is it not perhaps subjective that which is in the physical or beneath the physical? So, what is truly subjective is what is below the limits of our perceptions.

“Psychologists do not know how to use the former terms correctly.

“Objective: the light, the resplendence; it is that which contains the Truth, clarity, lucidity.

“Subjective: the darkness, the tenebrous. The subjective elements of perception are the outcome of seeing, hearing, touching, smelling and tasting. All of these are perceptions of what we see in the third dimension. For example, in one cube we see only length, width and height. We do not see the fourth dimension because we are bottled up within the ego. The subjective elements of perception are constituted by the ego with all of its “I’s.” - Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah

"Let us distinguish between objectivity and subjectivity. Awakened consciousness is objective, whereas subconsciousness, that is, sleeping consciousness, is subjective. Only objective consciousness can enjoy objective knowledge." —Samael Aun Weor, Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

“The modern, revolutionary psychology of the new Age of Aquarius utilizes the terms “objective ” and “subjective” in the following way:

A) Objective - Real, spiritual, true, divine, etc.

B) Subjective - Vague, incoherent, not precise, illusory, fantastical, absurd.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Three Mountains
