If we partition reality into things and properties of things, then we at the same time create a fundamental difference – that between things and their properties.
This difference means that not both things and their properties can be real, because if they could, then they could also fuse into one, which they thus can’t, since they are different.
The difference also means that a hypothetical “truth” can’t be both consistent and unambiguous, but instead has to be either contradictory or ambiguous, ie, either contain an internal contradiction or be subjective. This is the reason why objectivity has a tendency to end in contradiction, like cladistics and particle physics. Objectivity can actually discuss reality consistently only in terms of process, not in terms of pattern.
