The below is an example of that old high school saying, "The stars are matter. We are matter. It don't matter." Cute, but lame.
Everything is a manifestation of energy, so in a holistic way there is no objectivity or otherness.
Unless otherness doesn't depend on energy, in the same way that a scalpel and a retractor are both surgical steel but neither is the other and both are objectively different. A radio wave emitted by a star and a radio wave modulated by a radio station are both emitted radio waves but they are both objectively and subjectively different. It's their differences, not their similarities, that make the difference.

Phililosophically speaking objectivity is a form of subjectivity.
