I came upon the idea after considering how is it that the notion of an
"objective reality" when we know for a fact that all of our knowledge does not
come from any kind of direct contact with an "objective reality", at best it is
infered. Leibniz' Monadology can be considered as a way to think of this idea
where each monad represents a 1-PoV. A synchronization of many such 1PoV, given
some simple consistensy requirements, would in the large number limit lead to a
notion of a "common world of experience".
The 3PoV would follow from a form of inversion or reflection of a 1PoV. For
example, we form thoughts of or fellow humans from our own experiences of
ourselves. BTW: it seems to me that consciousness, at least, requires some form
of dynamic self- modeling process. This implies that there is no such a thing
as a static consciousness.
Re the UD Measure problem: The idea i have is that we either have our
infinity within each Monad or try to find a way to derive a measure of the
infinity without reference to the only source of definiteness that we have
available: our conscious experience.

Hi Bruno and Members,
The comment that is made below seems to only involve a single
consciousness and an exterior "reality". Could we not recover a very similar
situation if we consider the 1-PoV and 3-PoV relation to hold to some degree
over a multitude of consciouness (plurality). In the plurality case, the
"objective doubtful but sharable possible reality" would be composed of a large
intersection of sorts of 3-PoV aspects that can be recognized by or mapped to a
statistical or generic notion of a 1-PoV. No?
Yes. May be. Why? You need something like that for the first person plural,
but you have to extract it in some precise way for solving the UD measure
problem. You could elaborate perhaps.
