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?
