Hi Stephen

Alas, I am a mere engineer, not a philosopher. The only author I can 
point you to is John Locke who I was told had some view similar to the 
ones I expressed. I have formed my opinions  mostly independently in the 
process of writing a book (unpublished :'( )  I think that science is 
moving gradually toward first person - starting with Galileo's 
relativity, then Einstein's relativity and finally with QM (MWI). As 
science had progressed, the observer has acquired a greater and greater 
importance. Extrapolating to the limit, "I" becomes central and its 
existence anthropically defines (creates) the world where it resides.
