Definitely subjective josef. By the way I am ignorant of any absolutely objective data except what Plotinus said: "I know I am, but I don't know what I am." On the other hand, I do not know whether or not you have some objective data.
Practical value: Is it experentially/practically useful to embody the dao, as ZZ suggests? Do I enjoy it?
If so, he tells me, everything will have use for me, everything that happens to me, every object I encounter will have the same "gui," the same value. Shit will be as useful as gold.
But that's only the way I read the notion of daoguan. Your reading has just as much validity as mine, imo. And is just as potentially useful (valuable) to me.
