Truth in clustering data

My current work has been making me ask some awkward questions. Is there ever any objectively true metric or method for clustering data? When subjective choices are made of methods and metrics will the results always be subjective? Such questions may be arbitrary in the face of the bizarre term ‘truth’ anyway.

Its probably just the case that I am bored…
