  Philosophers often contrast objective reality and subjective appearances—how things seem from different points of view and how things really are. For example, one can contrast how the rock really is, independently of any subjective point of view, and the different ways it appears through a fish\'s eyes and through human eyes. In this context, the absolute is usually taken to mean the totality of objective reality, which transcends all subjective points of view upon it. AJ
