So your view, expressed above, seems to be that the subject of the
spatio-temporal illusion is the "person associated with those numbers". If
this be the case, how can we categorise such a subject, as distinct from
the numbers that locally encode its logic? Doesn't it rather naturally fit
with Bitbol's sense of a generalised Mind, logically conditioned by - but
not identical to - the specifics of an underlying "real system"? And if
so, does not this subjective intuition, generalised in such terms, seem
ultimately to denote a universal, rather than an individual, category?
