Each macroscopic system is its own subjectivity, dividing the universe into
In and Out, or if you prefer, Mind and Reality
(I identify Mind with the collection of patterns in the system, not with the
system itself)

The collection of subjectivities combine (by some kind of Feynman sum?) to form
the intersubjectivity that we call Objective Reality

Or, this is the World According to Ben ;)
