In answer to the second statement "we must view our selves as part of the measuring apparatus, after all it is we who decide if the rule is straight or not". In an absolute way this is true, but then the questions become meaningless because who's asking them. If we don't keep some distance between one thing and another, ourselves and the measurement for example, who's going to witness the result. Or another way of putting it is simply stating "if we don't understand outselves fully how can we understand anything else" But if you take some action and get a reaction then the beginning of understanding take shape, and continues to greater refinement but never perfect or absolute, at least not so far, and I would hope never.
