When one makes music, they face the choice to package it, present it- essentially objectify it- in an effort to assess its true value- or they could decide not to do that, retreat to their subjective relationship with their music, live in their fantasy, and, well, in a way, honor the music more because music ultimately exists to serve some subjective purpose anyway.
There are so many parallels here, too. Replace "makes music" with "listens to music" (consider last.fm, RYM). Hell, replace it with "relates to other people."
Help me musikchan with my slightly music related existential crisis- what is right? Is there a broad answer for all of this, or if not, how do you draw the lines?

>music ultimately exists to serve some subjective purpose anyway
No. I refuse to believe that. You didn't actually ask a question. Make music because you enjoy it. Sell it if you want to make money on it. The monetary value of music is not an absolute judge of quality. It measures how much people want it. Lots of garbage music is in high demand. Don't draw any lines because lines are useless and restrictive. Drawing lines won't help you
